Can I with a Tcl command tell whether I'm on the development or the live site?

Certainly you can, just use [SHOW PM_HOST] and
[SHOW PM_PORT] and this will give you the CDS host:port
information you want, and from them you can know if its the Live CDS or the development CDS .  

Another way is to declare a local
var in your delivery.tcl with the host and port of your CDS but this is not necessary as Vignette provides you the same information:

If the two CDS are on diferent machines:

on the delivery.tcl from the Live CDS :  
  SET PORT_LIVE 83
  SET HOST_LIVE 140.25.52.21  

on the delivery.tcl from the Live CDS :  
  SET PORT_DEV 81
  SET HOST_DEV 140.25.52.22  

if the two CDS are on the same machine :
  SET PORT_LIVE 83
  SET PORT_DEV 81
  SET HOST_CDS 140.25.52.21

You probably want to put this in a library, and in that library set any variables that are box specific.  Then include that library in all the pages that reference the box name for generating links, etc.  I used to use HTTP_HOST and HTTP_SERVER_NAME mostly.
