Now I am lost, wouldn't ServerRoot always be the same?  Apache only
allows this directive once, so I'm missing the dynamic part.  Do you
have each developer running his own apache on a different port, in a
different directory?

I used to think that, and wrote a lot of perl - I'm glad I stopped =p.
If you really want this, look into mod_perl and/or mod_macro, both of
which should be able to do what you are looking for - though I freely
admit I'm not sure what you are needing.  Perl looks something like:

  $Location{"/~dougm/"} = {
    AuthUserFile => '/tmp/htpasswd',
    AuthType => 'Basic',
    AuthName => 'test',
    DirectoryIndex => [qw(index.html index.htm)],
    Limit => {
      METHODS => 'GET POST',
      require => 'user dougm',

	If you want a more detailed example, search for conf file from a
Colbalt system, which configured everything based on a directory
structure including SSL.
