Are any problems likely to result from allowing many developers to
share a single tla library?

You haven't said how developers are sharing the library.

A local directory on each of the servers that form part of the
development cluster.

That shouldn't be a problem, but I haven't tried it, myself.

still isn't clear to me whether having a working copy on an NFS
partition is a problem, if you are using a library (so have no
pristines in your {arch} directory in the working copy) on the local
disks of each of the machines from which you access the NFS working

The problems are with reference trees (pristines and revlibs). If the reference tree isn't on NFS, but your working tree is on NFS, that will work. If the device number changes, tla will have to work harder when computing changesets, but it won't do anything incorrect.
