we do this kind of stuff alot...

we generally compile the modules into apache, which can lead to some
dramas on its own, but we have several apaches running on different
high ports, ie:

 port 10080 developer1
 port 10443 developer1
 port 11080 developer2
 port 11443 developer2

'cause the developers are bouncing the apache servers all the time,
it doesn't matter so much, as they don't need to be root in order to
restart them ...
