remove unencrypted mode

You need to
before you can comment on or make changes to this bug.
Our "unencrypted" mode means that we let the VNC traffic go outside the SSH
tunnel, directly to the server. This feature should be removed as it is rather
unintuitive (it breaks the principle of using just port 22 and the GUI suggests
that we just tell SSH to not encrypt the data), it's insecure (of course) and I
doubt anyone actually uses it.
The only reason to keep it around is for performance, but SSH is not that much
of a bottle neck in most cases.
Fixed in r29276 and r29277.
Tester should check that there is nothing left in the code or documentation for
the unencrypted mode.
Still in the usage message:
tlclient_tlclient.cc: " -
sshcrypt: ssh encryption\n"

There are still stuff in TAG referencing unencrypted connections see image @
The options screen shot is also wrong.
Images updated in r29535.
