Would be
               don't allow GUI RPC connections, don't make socket.
               If this option is given the client can't be controlled
               by the BOINC command tool (boinc_cmd) or the BOINC Manager
               (boincmgr) or other tools that use RPCs to communicate
               with the client.

a better description? If not, could you please make a suggestion how the 
description could be improved?
