I beg to differ with one detail. The DISPLAY environment variable is for
the CLIENT, to tell it on what host the X-server is to be found, not .to
get the MIX server to look at the local computer for the running x client
application. Hence, this should be documented in client software
documentation, not in the X-server's documentation.
