Some quick answer... but essentially, a lot of the thinks you are asking
are planned to be developed during this year...

A first version of multi-user notebook is planned to begin the development
after the release of 2.0. and it is probably the main feature for the next
6 month cycle. But, right now, the multi-user capabilities are non-existing
and you have share your notebooks with others if you want to collaborate
with them.

No, there will be some problems, but it is planned to support some sort of
diff and merge function inside IPython.

In master, and in the next upcoming release, you have the capability to
navigate directories from the dashboard.

Probably all your needs will be covered in a couple of months ;-)
