My initial thought was that this was for applications like TweetDeck where users have multiple accounts, but the docs say that Desktop clients should keep using the normal User Streams. Will there be an update for the User Streams to support having multiple accounts, are the docs wrong, or do you really want us to open (in some cases) 10 connections?
