Keep in mind that the k12ltsp server is running approximately the
same code but much more up-to-date than your SME server.  The only
thing that would make it much less secure is that by default all
users could log into a normal shell from outside via ssh where on
SME they get a non-working shell.

I think this is right, since the transparent redirector happens as a
routing step that isn't done on packets from the local box.
