Couldn't you make /home NFS, but not include ~/.kde/? I mean, you can make the
wrapper script for mounting /home auto create ~/.kde/ (using maybe ftp or wget
to fetch it from the same computer you're hosting /home on). The only downfall
to this method is that if you change something setup-wise it won't be saved, but
I guess that's what you'd expect when you're running a network like this.
