The above can be done conditionally:


should return "ok" on stdout, if the feature is present.

In Python X2Go I load the "x2gofeaturelist" on every server  
connection, so that I know what features are supported and what not.  
Note, that X2Go Client so far has not been using this  
x2gofeature(list) thingy. I wrote that for Python X2Go to be more  
flexible on the client side when it comes to new server features and  
legacy support for older servers.

Also note, that x2goserver-x2goagent for Debian was actually buggy  
regarding that new feature, see:
