Thanks for the suggestion. I had actually done some experimentation with
LTSP a few months ago, but opted not to use it in this situation.
Part of the reason I chose not to use it here was the specific desire to
not have a window manager, combined with our (but maybe not permanent)
requirement to use Putty instead of any other/better/native SSH terminal
That said, I'm seriously considering it for some internal thin clients -
that's a longer term plan though :-)
What type of thin client do you have spare?

With regard to thin-client solutions then I wonder if you are aware of the
Linux Terminal Server Project.
Here is the wiki...
The performance of the network to the remote clients would be the major
factor in how to implement LTSP. If the network performance is poor then,
since LTSP V5, there is support for "fat" clients, so it should still be
possible for a client to boot in, say, 10 seconds.
I've got some old thin client PC's if you'd like to use them to experiment
