I was just about to explore the fixes for keyboard support in #1147
(Thanks for this - looks good to me) when I discovered that the
environment variables for PASSWORD and ENCRPYTION are gone. They were
removed in r12099 and r11465. I can see the mention of "Legacy" and
"security" in the change logs...
Before I am hacking something to get this working again - what is/was
the exact reasoning for removing those environment variables ?
I quite like the fact that you can specify the password and encryption
key on-demand in a session before launching xpra - Currently I store the
password and encrpytion keys in a protected database and extract them
on-demand to set them. That way I don't leave any trace on the storage
backend (except in the db). Only the xpra logs are written.
