This doesn't make sense to me.  If you've got two requests open from
the same exit to the same site, using different accounts, then all the
site can tell is that two Tor users (or maybe one) are connecting to
it.  That's also the same conclusion it could reach if the two
requests were coming from the same exit

Now, the site might have rules that say "no IP can have two sessions
open at once!"  But if that's what the site says, they probably don't
*want* you using two accounts at the same time.

Is there a better use case here?
