That's a good question. I've never had an issue with one developer brining the server to it's knees. Perhaps we've just been lucky.
I have used a production server as a dev server before launch, but I wouldn't continue to dev on that box afterwards. My ideal (and current) environment utilizes three servers: dev & beta, staging, and production.
