OK, thanks, that's more or less what I thought. Not that I think there's a big risk of anyone using this by accident ;)
It could provide an alternative to running Qt apps on remote X11 displays (doesn't work very well) and to running a full desktop VNC (cumbersome if the remote host runs at a much higher resolution than the client).

It's a bit annoying on Mac that you need to code-sign applications that you want to use this with, or else authorise them to go through the firewall each time (for some reason that setting doesn't "stick" anymore).
