It could do if you have /etc/mongrel accessible by the other
administrators (i.e.: chmod ugo+x /etc/mongrel chmod u+s /etc/mongrel,
so it works a la /tmp way). Otherwise you could change the script so
instead of looking in /etc/mongrel it will looks in $HOME/mongrel o
whatever, for the values of $HOME you prefer.

This is exactly what we do in production, the script only activates
the mongrel servers, Apache (in a reverse proxy configuration, plus
different users for each application to maximize security) is handled
by another script.
