Afs home directories and .Xauthority is a pretty good way to let
everyone on your machine read all your keystrokes.

Anything that assumes unix permissions of 600 provides sufficient
security in a world readable directory breaks badly under current 
AFS file permission models. (i.e acl's per directory, not file.. )
