We're planning to add a GUI interface sometime in the future as well
(still maintaining the CLI client, of course).  So this issue will
likely become an even more common problem.

How could you handle this, though?  Each individual user would need
their own name and notification configuration (e.g., email addresses to
send to, etc).  In "compete mode", when you started gtypist, would you
be presented with a pop-up asking you to choose the current user profile
(or create one)?

This is certainly an interesting idea.
