    Seems like there's no real good solution out there. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Apple's suggestion doesn't automatically load the changes from another account. i.e, if another user adds a few songs to the Library, it won't automatically show up in iTunes when launched by another user

    I forget what it is, but if you hold down either control, option or the command key when clicking the iTunes icon in the dock it allows you to start a new library under the same logged in account.

    I think he wants to be able to share the same library with multiple users, not create multiple libraries for one user. :)
