This is a possibility, but the number of "dot" files in
your home directory /home/ja that are affected is
probably fairly controllable. X, KDE, etc. all have
ways to support the kind of functionality you are
trying to achieve.
To summarize, you are looking for a way to run
X (and ?KDE?/?Gnome?/what else?) more than
once on different machines sharing the same
home directory (with configuration, temporary,
etc. files) such that there are no file conflicts
between the different instances. You're looking
for file conflicts only in your home directory.

I think you'll get some good answers here...but perhaps
you have some better ideas to help you google.
