Sorry john but seem you are wrong.
I've seen tons of setup made that way and also tested recentely this
thing while thinking of the gums api for head.

Windows is cleanely happy to have users and machines with the same name,
infact I think the whole machine$ thing has been done exactly for this
purpose, so that the user can have the same name of a machine as machine
has $ postpended.
