That's quite a stretch even there, imv anyway...  It'd have to be put
somewhere a backend connecting would think to look for it, given that
the user can't change the environment variables and whatnot (I don't
think) of the backend process...  Regardless, strong wording against
allowing users to issue arbitrary connect's from a backend process is
appropriate, regardless of what's affected exactly (as that could
possibly change over time anyway too...).
