I tried this with some readme file. It turned out (of course), that it 
is not trivial to links such file:

you can access .../home0/$USER on tjener, but the local /etc is not seen 
from thin clients (or workstations). Putting a copy of the target onto 
the ltsp server [and all workstations] is a solution, but you have to 
create the link from tjener as you cannot access .../home0 as local 
user on ltsp server. 

I suppose the most forward way was to create some "default" user 
directory in .../home0 itself as this is the only way to have a path 
that can be reached by ordinary users from every machine.
