With a pop3 email client, you can simply keep multiple profiles with 
different from: addresses (done differently in different clients).  Then 
again, with a pop3 email client, checking mail from multiple email 
addresses isn't such a big deal.  I don't think there's really an 
efficient way to address this using gmail.
