Comment (by X512):

On the other hand, if all data structures in app_server and registrar
 were multiuser-compliant

 `app_server` is already mostly multiuser-compilant. It is even working in
 `test_app_server`. For real `app_server` the only problem that prevents
 GUI applications of multiple users from running is missing of desktop
 switching (workspace switching is already present).

not to mention more logic that could be a performance impediment, even
 when only one user is in use.

 Separate port and looper for each session can be used to avoid any table
 lookup overhead. app_server already has separate desktop threads and
 ports.
