[Techtalk] different X resolutions for different users?

Does anyone know if there's any good way to have different users use 
different screen resolutions for X on the same machine?  I like to run at 
1600x1200, but I'd like my daughter to be able to log in and have a lower 
resolution, so the web games she likes to play can occupy more than just a 
small part of the screen.

I'm using XFree86 on Debian Woody, with KDM as the login manager.  If 
there's no way to do it with KDM, I'd be willing to switch to a different 
login manager, or use text-based logins and run startx.

Thanks for any help!
