[Live-demo] Running OSGeo-Live in Apache VCL

my university made OSGeo-Live available for students through Apache VCL
(Virtual Computing Lab). It is customary that on Linux machines you get
your user name, however the examples and defaults in OSGeo-Live are
expecting user name to be 'user'.

I have tried GRASS GIS where you have to change the grassdata directory. In
QGIS, you have to change the paths in the project when opening the project
(the GUI allows you to edit them manually). I'm not sure what else is
influenced. The browser's default page was not localhost.

Do you thing is it worth trying asking to change user name to 'user'? Or,
from your experience, do you think that few broken project files wouldn't
be such a problem when people follow tutorials? Or is is feasible to change
the user name everywhere? Few sed commands would take care of QGIS project
file and GRASS GIS defaults but I have no idea what else is there.
