It would be nice to have the ability to change this setting in the gui clients and not only on command line clients!

ups, I meant to have the possibility...

my english is not very well...

If this option could be included whether in web-prefs or in the client then I could ask the clients about their work stats with boincview. (http://boincview.amanheis.de/)

Its a little good tool to have an overview of all running clients in my network running on linux (windows gui versions in future?).

Actually, no. The plan is that everyone runs the CLI, and the GUI communicates with the CLI for display, and settings control. The flag allows remote control of that CLI from a GUI on a different machine. The default is off for security reasons. In some locations, allowing the remote GUI is a bad idea.
