Distinguishing Multiple SL Instances when Task-Switching

Thanks to the Running Multiple Viewers page, I'm running up to four actor alts at once on a MacBook Pro, but switching between them is a bit hit-&-miss, because both the Dock and cmd+tab switching show four identical items: white-on-grey SL logo icons each called "Second Life":

OS-X-Dock-as-is.jpg

What would be really useful would be, for instance, something like this:

OS-X-Dock-as-ideal.jpg

I imagine these SL instances would be launched by double-clicking a similar item in the Finder, eg: called "SL - Samara Karfield" with a portrait icon, which would remember only that particular instance's login details.

Might there be a quick-n-dirty workaround to achieve some of this, ahead of it being made so by Linden coding experts?
