You might check the archives of the extremeprogramming or 
testdrivendevelopment mailing lists at groups.yahoo.com.  These
issues have been discussed there in the past, although I don't think
I would say I saw clear, concise instructions on how to avoid all
the problems in this area.  You might get some good ideas to get
past your mental blockage about how this could work.
