Or, depending on the site architecture and the scope of work being
done on it, each developer could have a working copy of the *entire*
site served as individual virtual hosts, e.g. peter.dev.oursite.com,
linda.dev.oursite.com (probably this is what Nicolai meant by, "Each
user can have his/her own").

Furthermore, each w.c. could be rooted in either trunk, or a branch -
and switched at will.
