It very likely doesn't exist yet, distribution packages do usually not create 
empty subdirectories.

Files in the env directory are sourced by the startkde script, so actually 
they don't need to be scripts themselves, but they need to have the .sh 

However I am not sure this is going to work in all cases. Software might use 
the system API do determine the home directory and not read $HOME

Maybe you find a way to mount over the real home directory even when not usin 
pam-mount in case you can't use that
