@up, I would like to prove it may be switched off in ROMs by default.

@Rox, because multi-user (well, actually absence of the KeyguardMultiUserSelectorView layout when multi-user is activated) causes regular exceptions E/KeyguardHostView: can't find user_selector in layout. Here is a research on this.
So, if few or even none of Ace 2 users need it, I will ask you to deactivate it in CM10.2 as a useless and harmful feature.

@Rox, I agree that 'harmful' is kind of a bit too strong term, but on the other hand those exceptions prove that multi-user wasn't fully implemented, so it's hard to estimate where else it could misbehave.

I see the following cons; 1) flooding logcat with E-tagged messages, 2) probability of hidden issues.
I'm trying to find pros but so far there are none of them.

Well, why not fix the REAL problem and implement the lockscreen switcher?

1) Motivation; why implementing if nobody needs the feature?
2) Those hypothetical hidden issues wouldn't still be addressed.
