the multi user aspects are usually very well covered by powerful RDBMS,
there's no need to implement all of that on the client side of things,
but just to get the client integrate in that multi user environment.

And if you need multi user environments for data sources that dont
implement, there are very "easy" solutions, some of which are planned
for future libgda releases, like doing a CORBA provider, or a SOAP
provider that allows access to data sources in remote machines.
