I wonder if now we can get email notifications partially thanks to my ranting. And flair rocks! :D

@Mark Thanks to your comments, I've heavily edited the question, in hope it's clearer now. Feel free to delete your comments, so I could clean up and delete mine as well! ;P

comment How to use Dropbox for applications with Lion Versions support?
Out of curiosity, I wonder what are the updates on this issue...

comment How to get the shortest file size on aliases?
It's an alias pre-Lion without thumbnails and preferably with less than 2kb. I'm not sure if those keep the magical link, but I bet it wouldn't need to be much bigger than that.

@Mark symlink is the smallest kind of file link, but it's very different from Alias as you can see from the first 2 bullet points.

comment Adding a new executable to the PATH environment variable?
If, by any chance, you need a full directory in the PATH, for there are many executables in it you need access to, there isn't any other option and that's what the PATH is for. Currently we use the ~/.bash_profile to add to path.

Adding a directory to path is a whole different question, which should yeld to different answers

Please, follow @Gerry's advice in the other answer, and symlink it. It is the cleanest way!

@Buscar웃 what you mean? Using just 1 mac user-account?! I can't connect to a second drive account without disconnecting the first here.

comment How to launch Google Drive in another user's session?
@Buscar웃 think different, huh? I just want to keep my work and home google drive in sync with my personal computer. But I could as well simply want to run 2 simultaneous GUI applications which have some useful background process but no command line version. IMHO, "why is doing such thing so complicated?" would be a much better question.

comment How to launch a GUI application in another user's graphical session?
Hoping to achieve exactly what says in the title: launch a gui application in another user's session. "Bonus points" if the other user doesn't need to be logged in or if it can be logged in programmatically. In specific, I want multiple google drive. It works if I simply log in manually and it's under that user's Login Items on System Preferences. A trampoline process wouldn't bring the bonus points, but if that's the only way, what is precisely the Apple engineers recommendation against it? I thought it would be precisely for doing such simple hack scripts! :P

Could you provide a simple script, such as in TJ's answer there, but one that works? Or is it just too complex for such a thing?
