Syncing libraries (iPhoto, etc.) between two Macs using External HD?

I am thinking of buying an external HD to store my iPhoto, iTunes, Lightroom, and possibly iMovie libraries so I can switch between my iMac and Macbook Air. Will this work? Thoughts, tips, caveats?

So I have huge libraries (iTunes, iPhoto, Lightroom, and iMovie) that won't fit on my Macbook Air's puny 128 GB SSD. I'd like to be able to work with my libraries on my Macbook Air. If I buy a 2GB USB3 HD, move my libraries to it, and point my Macs to it, will I be able to effortlessly switch between my Macbook Air and iMac? Can I expect any hiccups, annoyances, caveats?
