Our projects are organized in directory trees. For security
reasons the root directory of each project is protected by ACLs.
Write access is limited to the member of the projects' group.
When somebody starts working on a project he has to start a setup
script. This starts new shell, sets the projects' group to the
primary group, and sets several environment variables.
Then the user normally starts an Emacs and keeps it running until
he has to reboot his computer.

Yes we do so whenever it is possible. The above lines describe
the situation when we don't have an Emacs running on a 64 bit
