IMHO, ideally, developers should not be sharing any

For example, let's say developers are sharing a
database.  What happens if a developer drops a table,
or renames a column, or changes a stored proc?

Another example, let's say developers are sharing an
application server.  What happens if a developer
bounces or crashes the server?

The worst case is when developers share source, as the
original poster wanted.  What happens if multiple
developers vi the same file or temporily break the
build in some way?  Of course, the developer was
asking about SQL files, but similar problems exist: 
What happens if a developer renames a stored proc,
changes the arguments to one, or changes the type of a

Of course, if there are only a few developers, the
problems from above may be tolerable.  OTOH, if
there's more than just a few developers, work starts
to become fighting amongst each other.
