It seems like an interesting idea. Could be useful for trying out
new/old versions software where you don't want it to stuffing up or
falling over on any part of your existing setup, including $HOME,
however you don't want to completely give up on your environment.

I would look into this myself, but unfortunately am lacking the key
"time" ingredient required to make it work.
