With longer startup time, and strange errors, and just because I ssh
into a system with X11 forwarding enabled, so that it is available when
I want it, doesn't mean I want vim to use it *now*. gvim startup over
ssh is rather irritatingly slow, I use it when I know I'm going to have
it open for a while, and if I want multiple windows open.

And similarly, just because my screen session is pointing to the local X
display, doesn't mean I haven't sshed into the screen session from
another machine and want it to open on the local X display that I am not
sitting in front of...
