Then manually install different binaries.
If you like a red scheme and your girlfriend prefers
yellow, then you configure two dwm's in separate repos
and compile them. then copy the binaries "dwm-red" and
"dwm-yellow" to your /bin and set in each user's initrc:

exec dwm-red


exec dwm-yellow

That's it!

If you have a large set of input modifications, you
could also hack the config.h-part a bit and include
another header with shared defines, and so on and
so on ...

Btw, I'd love to see a woman use suckless software.
Anybody know someone? ^^
