Remote iMac Use W/o Using Monitor

I'm trying to set up a simple system where I can access an iMac remotely, use its resources graphically but not interfere with someone else using the computer locally. I have Apple Remote Dektop setup and it's perfect, except that if I'm using it remotely, the local screen is monopolized by my use... not ideal.
SSH is also very close to what I'm aiming for, except that I would like to be using some GUI programs installed on the iMac as well.
And it'd be really great if several people could connect to the iMac and use it graphically without disturbing the local user.
I appreciate any advice or suggestions that you can offer!
