A configuration option would only work for people who happen to read
fedora-devel-list or care enough to search deeply for it (this is a tiny
fraction of the user base, or I hope so anyways).

Probably the ideal way things could work here is that on a user switch,
instead of automatically stopping playback at that point, we instead
have an unobtrusive window appear in the new user's session, say at the
bottom right (or as a notification area display) that says:
"Other User is playing music [Pause Playback] [X]".

This all said though, I don't see how it's really a big deal if playback
automatically stopped on user switch.  There are a lot more important
bugs...
