User login - Initial plan was something along the lines of Netflix user-
selection for shared frontends and a permanent-login option for dedicated 
frontends (bedrooms, play room, uni dorms etc).

Right now all that exists is the very basic user framework. Nothing except the 
WebFrontend even uses the framework and the whole permissions side is just 
stubbed out.

There are a lot of unanswered questions too, especially around the must-have 
feature for me - separate recordings and recording rules. I have an general 
idea how that would all work but the detail is missing. Especially what 
happens if two people want to create a rule for the same program but with 
slightly different priorities or recording groups.
