There is a way - but not quite as you described.
You can have multiple users on the same console. Each user can then start an
individual KDE session.
The system is this:
Hit Ctrl-Alt-F2 to get a text console.
log in the other user
Enter the command
startx -- :1
this will start a second kde session
to swap between sessions hit crtl-alt-f7 to get back to the first, and
ctrl-alt-f8 to get back to the second.
If this arrangement is satisfactory, you can alias startx to 'startx -- :1' in
the user's .bashrc file.
Sorry about the command line, but if you want to something exotic, command
line it has to be. Try that trick with window$!!
