I believe that this is more or less correct.
If you can connect to an X11 server, you can use either the RECORD,
XTrap, or DEC-XTrap extensions to access the protocol stream. You can
also take control of input devices using XTEST. There are some limits
(eg, I think openGL/GLX stuff that goes through DRI won't get posted).
