Just a thought: one possibility would be to create a virtual host for each
developer on the development server - that way, Fred can test his changes at
http://fred.internal.example.com, whereas Jim would access
http://jim.internal.example.com, where both are serviced by the same
physical server. This way there is only one central configuration file (so
one person can manage it - and keep all the hosts in sync), but it provides
some isolation, allowing one developer to break things without
inconveniencing everyone else...
