More roaming users

I use two different workstations for different purposes - One has a 21" 
monitor which I run at 1600x1280 (or whatever the correct numbers are). The 
other has a 15" monitor which shows 1024x768. I have managed to get two 
separate sets of desktop icons reflecting each machine by setting the desktop 
directory to /home/dylan/desktop/$HOSTNAME, which works like a dream. 
However, the edit box in the Control Centre (Look&feel>Desktop>paths) 
resolves the variable reference, which is inconvenient when it comes to 
checking/changing the settings.

Now, given that one monitor shows a much higher res desktop, is there a 
reasonably convenient way to get icon sizes and font metrics to vary from one 
machine to the other. Having trawled thru /home/.kde/share/config, I notice 
these settings seem to be sprinkled across several files (at least kdesktoprc 
and konqiconviewrc.)
