This just in from Netflix:
We wanted to let you know we will be eliminating Profiles, the feature that allowed you to set up separate DVD Queues under one account, effective September 1, 2008.
Each additional Profile Queue will be unavailable after September 1, 2008. Before then, we recommend you consolidate any of your Profile Queues to your main account Queue or print them out.
While it may be disappointing to see Profiles go away, this change will help us continue to improve the Netflix website for all our customers.

This sucks, my girlfriend and I love this feature. We get to share our Netflix account and can both queue movies without monopolizing the queue. For example, I currently have out Trial at Nuremberg, while at the same time my girlfriend has out Carmen Electra’s Aerobic Striptease. See Netflix, this is WIN WIN!
UPDATE 2008-06-30: Netflix has rescinded its decision to eliminate profiles.
We Are Keeping Netflix Profiles
You spoke, and we listened. We are keeping Profiles. Thank you for all the calls and emails telling us how important Profiles are.
We are sorry for any inconvenience we may have caused. We hope the next time you hear from us we will delight, and not disappoint, you.
