Then how about this:
Symlink ~/.gnome-desktop to /path/to/shared/desktop.
/path/to/shared/desktop is not world-writable.
Put in /path/to/shared/desktop a launcher called "My Stuff" (or
something like that) that launches the following command:
nautilus ~/

So a user can't write to the desktop, but all he has to do is to
doubleclick on an icon to open his home folder, and he can save all the
files there.
How's that? A doubleclick shouldn't be too difficult.
