It isn't the best way, especially if multiple developers are
actively changing files in the same checkout-area. There might be
some reason they feel like they need to do things this way (such
as: they are all working on a set of tightly-related changes,
and this is the only sensible way to test everyone's changes at
the same time). But in general, this sounds like a bad idea to
me. If they don't have some reason which forces them to work in
that manner, then they should split up into separate work-areas.
