How about just setting aside a dedicated partition with its own complete file
system?  Then you don't share recordings or database or anything, but you also
don't risk messing up your production system.  Of course, you have to take down
your production system while testing/developing your trunk system, but a few
tens of gigabytes of disk space is probably enough for development, and is a
lot cheaper than a whole separate system.  Is anybody doing this?
