OK, thanks for the information.  I had already read the man page for
MUNGE, but to me it doesn't make it explicitly clear that MUNGE doesn't,
out of the box, include the possibility to do something like SSH.

Would it be correct to say that, if one were daft enough, one could
build some sort of terminal server on top of MUNGE without using SSH,
but which could then replicate basic SSH behaviour?
