Not sure whether this discussion belongs on the user list, but here goes.
It seems to me that GRASS has a reasonably well-developed concept of multi-user
_data_, but a comparatively weaker concept of multi-user _displays_. In the
long-term, it would appear that user-specific monitors should be allocated on
demand. Which raises the question of whether it is possible or sensible to
write dynamically to the <etc/monitorcap> file at run-time?
