No... no it shouldnt. Just like starting up something like a p2p
client shouldnt automatically punch a hole. No way should any end-user
application like vino have rights to punch a hole in the firewall
without sysadmin authorization. No way, no how. Even on a single user
system...no way. Opening up the firewall should be a delibrate act and
not something that is automated behind the scenes. If you want to
argue that system-config-securitylevel needs should have a pre-defined
entry for vino, that i can get behind.
