I actually have my local server set up so it uses example.local  
instead of example.com.  In wp-config.php I set WP_SITEURL etc., and I  
keep the wp-config.php one directory up from the WordPress files.  The  
local and "live" wp-config files aren't synced, but everything else  
is.  Works perfectly for me.  No extra code needed.

On another note: I keep my wp-content in a separate place too, so when  
upgrading I can completely wipe the wp/ directory and upload the new
