Open GUI programs as a fast-switched-out user

The snag to that plan is that you need to have their password.
Sadly, I thought about that one too - if only this had come a few days ago in time for April Fools day...

Well, that's not entirely true. If you have access to their account/machine when they're not looking, you can set up SSH public key authentication so that you can login to their account without a password. Check the manpages for the details.
