Linux/BSD utility: importing settings from remote $HOME

I'm just following and participating in a discussion about the desirable extent of customisation here that was caused by Linus' recommending the use of KDE.

What is sorely needed is a simple tool that will allow a user to connect to his home machine by ssh-entunneled ftp and just press a button for importing all his settings. Otherwise any extent of customisation will aggravate the user as soon as he has to work on a different machine.
