Two desktops running at once

Quite some time ago I tried running two KDE desktops on the same machine at 
the same time in different X sessions. The result wasn't pretty. Lots of 
clashes in the configuration files, corruptions and unhappiness which took 
some time to sort out.

I'm in no rush to try that again, but now have a use for such trickery. Does 
anyone do it? If so, what needs to happen to ensure the two KDEs work

...when I went to Mexico in December to the facility where we launched gnome, 
they had all switched to KDE3." - Miguel de Icaza, March 2003
