This could pose problems unless you are sure that your code is in a functional 
state after you pull the latest revision from Galaxy central.

The tools themselves are not "defined by the database", but metadata about the 
tools id stored in the database.  For each repository you install from the tool 
shed, you will have 1 row in the tol_shed_repository table in your database.  
This table has a column named metadata that stores this information about the 
repository, including its contents (tools, datatypes, workflows, etc).

Possibly.  If you install a repository from the tool shed that includes a tool 
config, changing your local version of the tool config could pose problems if 
you get updates for your installed repository from the tool shed.  If you don't 
do this, however, there should be no problem caused by changing your local 
version of the tool config.

The way the tool shed components are architected do not result in this "syncing 
issues".  You do not have to use the tool shed at all.  Based on your 
statements that you like to change your versions of the tool configs and Galaxy 
code, you can protect your version of things by not running the tool migration 
scripts at all.  Your Galaxy instance will still work as you expect.
