I try to hear what you aim at... My guess: one central installation of  
X2Go and a desktop shell (GNOME, KDE, ...) or single applications.  
Whereas the software rests in one single installations each user is  
presented with his/her own chroot.

How about installing X2Go + applications on the server and then  
setting up a chroot with --bind mounts and tmpfs directories. Each  
chroot jail will have _one_ homedir and ,,linked-in''-FHS-compliant  

Tricky approach this will be...
