Remote background GUI login to OSX?

I'm wanting to be able to login in to the OS X GUI remotely, in the background, i.e. without interrupting anyone that is currently sitting in front of the machine. I guess basically I'm looking for an equivalent to MS TerminalServices on OSX.

Apple Remote Desktop or VNC don't cut it -- they can only let me view/control the console session. I realize I can get a remote ssh login, but I need to be able to get a full, standard GUI login.

Anyone know if this is possible? Thanks

This isn't possible. Mac OS X Client only supports a single GUI session at a time (remote or local). There is a product that supports multiple GUI sessions, but it requires OS X Server so it's not applicable to your situation.
