Supporting and sandboxing multiple developers with the #AdTotum #API

Late last night I decided that the AdTotum API had to support multiple developers simultaneously in separate sandboxes, which could be turned live or deactivated separately. It needed a certain amount of rethinking and a lot of re-coding today, but now I'm satisfied that on any development server we can trial (or use) have multiple data sources, modeling environments and development teams without any risk of unexpected interaction.

Had to modularized the error message pipeline so that different developers can see the errors (and performance impact) that their own API calls were raising separately. This should allow 'black box' logging too - something that I think is essential.
