How would I see this from within psql?

Is there anything I could have looked at to see this?
Right now this machine is in testing stages, but I waiting authorization
to start production. Once I go on production then I will have more
people/connections. More importantly, right now I am the only one that
goes in so I know exactly who is connected. When I go on production I
won't know who/when other users connect.

I can see how many postgresql sessions are running from top, but how would
I see what users are connected from within psql?

If there is a way to see who is connected on psql, is there a way to kill
a connection other than SIGINT?
