Talk to AT&T.  This is their idea.  We wouldn't have bothered with it
(I believe) if their lawyers hadn't decided to make us do it.  It's
their scheme and their implementation.  They get a bunch more royalty
for machines with more than 2 users.  This may change with V.4, since
I understand that the royalty schedule is going to change once again
(as it has for just about every release since V.2).
