I need to blog about this, but I've got a rather elegant solution  
using apache_getenv, a switch statement, and the stuff you can do with  
wp-config.php in terms of URLs: http://codex.wordpress.org/Editing_wp-config.php

We use it to manage not only multi-environment dev workflows, but each  
member of the team manages their own local installs too. Still need to  
manage data syncing, like for content/configuration, but that can be  
done by treating one of the DBs as the 'source of truth' that all  
other sync from.
