Actually, local development (or each developer having their own WC on
the development server where they can code/test/debug) is a pretty
standard practice.

The Java web application I manage was initially developed by a
contractor working on MacOS and Linux, I can run it locally on XP, and
runs on both Win2K and Win2K3 servers in our environment. We have ZERO
"OS detection" routines in the application. We have OS- and
server-specific config files where appropriate to handle settings that
vary by those parameters and are applied when the application is
deployed, but we could have made them run-time if we wanted to give up
a little performance.

It *shouldn't* be hard to develop a cross-platform application that
runs on a "framework" (PHP) which already is cross-platform.
