 it right then, say employee #2.  Later on, employee #2 needs to use it,
 so you take it away from #3, and so on.  So, you always have a max

I believe (but don't quote me in a court of law) that this is the definition 
of "concurrent users" and is used all the time. I know we have a concurrent 
users agreement with our GUI software vendor and it works exactly like this. 
X number of users at one time, but X can vary as to individuals.

Moral? Sure. That's exactly how we contracted to use the product.
