Xorg syntax: "-nolisten tcp :93"


I recently installed XGL and had a quick question, not about XGL, but rather something I noticed in "ps -ef"

Code:
root      5603  5600  1 11:11 ?        00:01:10 /usr/bin/Xgl -br -ac -accel glx:pbuffer -accel xv -nolisten tcp :0 vt7 -auth /var/run/xauth/A:0-Rq499S
root      5604  5603  0 11:11 tty7     00:00:02 /usr/bin/Xorg -br vt7 -auth /tmp/.Xgl-auth-0feIjr -nolisten tcp :93 -terminate
I'm familiar with "-nolisten tcp :0" but on the Xorg one it has "-nolisten tcp :93". What's the difference between :0 and :93? I've never been sure what that part of the arguments meant, even from looking at the man entries.

Please check me on this, but I believe that ":0" and ":93" are parameters that have nothing to do with the -nolisten tcp." From the format, I thought they would be display number. But 93 seems a bit large for that. Unless it has some special meaning I am not aware of.
