comment What'd be a good SEd trick to list the properties of all X input devices?

Alternately, give yourself privilege to run sudo apt-get without a password. Create a file named /etc/sudoers.d/willem containing willem ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/apt-get -- assuming "willem" is your username

comment Running a bash script on “Switch User”?
You can still "automount", but each user has his own mountpoint. Then it doesn't matter if you switch users because A and B no longer clash. Unless your tools hardcode a single mountpoint, in which case you're screwed.

Sounds like you need a separate mount point for each user. You have to handle multiple users logged in somehow.
