it definantly works with a single back-end. In the case of a multi-server setup, 
it depends on if your murder substatute will show you the folders across 
back-ends or not in a listing.

you can always connect directly to the back-end (bypassing murder or it's 
replacement) to see all "other users" for that back-end.
