Collaborative Sandboxes?

I do believe the title says it all!

What are the options for implementing collaborative sandboxes?  As a background, I see that it's listed on the Roadmap (http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Roadmap) as a Q3/Q4 feature, but I don't see much activity around it (it's actually also described on the WCM wiki page as "low hanging fruit", which makes me feel stupid for not figuring it out!)

Anyways, I've come up with limited options for this:

1. Make everyone a Content Manager- Content Managers can peek into other sandboxes, so technically this works.  However, this then requires making everyone a superuser, which throws out the whole permissions system.  Not good.

2. Having everyone connect as the same user - This causes us to lose versioning (well, keeping track of who changed what).  Also not good.

What other options are there (the above just won't do :( )?  Would this be an easy extension to code up (and if so, where)?  And anyone know if this will this make it into an Alfresco release in the near future?
