Using WSUS by user instead of computer

I think I've got the WSUS thing somewhat figured out, but I have a question.  Is there any way to add a user to the OU that contains my GPO for WSUS, instead of a computer?  In my environment it would be a lot easier to keep track of users because the usernames never change, but the computer names change every time they are rotated out.  I've looked through the related questions and everyone seems to be talking about adding by computer.  If someone can help me make this work, I'd appreciate it!  Thanks in advance.

No, it is not possible to configure WSUS for users, its only computer based policy - you update computers, not users.
If you need to track down witch user uses witch computer (to know where to find failing computer) - thats another question. I prefer looking in antivirus central console, it tracks down last login. Also try amazing tool for administrating network computers - www.spiceworks.com
