This isn't particularly related to subversion, but a better
way to handle this is to set up virtual servers for each
developer on your development server. There are any number
of ways to do this. One would be to tie the vhost to a
different port number and let the server map the developer's
shared directory - or the other way around. In any case you
really want different people to able to test different
changes at the same time - otherwise the need for a few
quick fixes to your current version will kill the schedule
for the next major change.

You'll continue to have that problem though as long as you have
to touch the same pieces. Separating as much of the look as
possible into css can help.
