Cortex multiple users

so i have done a little searching and i cant seem to find an answer,

i am planning on splitting a superchips cortex programmer with a friend of mine who has an 06 xterra 4.0L

i was wondering if we will face any problems like if the programmer needs to be plugged in to work, or if the programmer imprints itself to a vehicle, or if there is a difference between the two vehicles even though superchips says the same model works for both vehicles since they have the same engine.

i assume i will encounter no problems but would like other peoples opinion or if anyone has any first hand experience with this. i haven't emailed superchips themselves because the way i figure it they have a vested interest to tell me that i need to buy 2

thanks for the help

Due to WAF (wife acceptance factor) and selling her on it a 350+ dollar purchase. Does anyone foresee Superchips or Hypertech "updating" (via download) an application so that a programmer could be shared?
I dont think so unless it is hackable, they want the money and locking to your ecu/vin is a pretty good way to sell 1 per vehicle. Also, by storing your factory tune, then moving it to another vehicle (assuming it would let you, NOT) would blow away your tune and leave you with what ever you did and no way to go back.
