[Rhythmbox-devel] Multi User Rhythmbox

On our family computer I often start a play list then leave the room
with it running which tends to really bother my wife since she can't
then skip a particular song, change the playlist or put in a movie for
the kids.

I was hoping that I could remidy the situation by creating a user
music that would run rhythmbox.  The idea being that we could both
have access to processes owned by the this user and control each
other's playlists.  This would work if I give the music user its own
session but I would much rather beable to control it from within my
session.  Unfortunately,  if I try to launch a second instance of
rhythmbox then the second instance immediately closes unexpectedly.
Is there a way to work around this?  If not, how hard would it be to
impliment?  I'd be willing to tweak the code if its not to hard and
someone points me in the right direction.

Perhaps there is a better way to share sound resource but, I haven't
been able to figure it out.  I realize this approach doesn't address
all the shared sound issues on a multi user desktop but it addresses
all of the significant ones we encounter.  If anyone has suggestions
for a more elegant approach I'm all ears.
