I work at an ISP and we concentrate all "development" issues on a
single machine which is our office mail server, shell account server
and development box. The users' work stations are partially Windows,
partially stripped down Debian boxes running as better X-Terminals.

On that central machine, it frequently happens that two or three
people build kernels for different purposes with different patches for
different machines at the same time, and it is a nuisance to have
kernel build related stuff in /usr/src in that environment.
