[sclug] sharing $HOME on various machines

I want to mount /home from the machine where our home dirs live on other 
machines (obviously enough). However since the machines differ in what 
apps are installed and what are running on each etc I don't want config 
files appropriate for one machine conflicting with another. For instance 
  if I'm running kde I want my kde apps menus to reflect what's actually 
on each machine.

I could spend half a lifetime fiddling around with symlinks like
	.thisapp -> $MACHINE/.thisapp
etc, but this seems a general enough problem I imagine others have come 
across it before (and maybe found some solutions). However I'm not sure 
where to look for answers (what terms to google for). Any pointers?
