You can use xscreensaver together with gdm, i.e. gdmflexiserver.
xscreensaver has this switch users functionality (must be compiled in,
but usually it is), which calls gdmflexiserver. When the screen is
locked via "xscreensaver-command -lock", the xscreensaver login gui
provides you with a "New Login" button which in turn brings you to a new
gdm login screen.
