I found a way to do it that creates roughly 1MB of overhead per client.
Essentially I could have many directories like so:
Each would be packed with symlinks to /usr/lib/openoffice/. The only
files that would not be symlinked would be program/soffice*. Then write
a wrapper script that picks a different one for each client.
Does this setup have any problems that I can't see? It seems to work.
