Here's one approach which we use.  It doesn't answer your question
directly, but it may give you some ideas.

We generally each have our own sandbox and webserver running on our
own boxes (we usually run linux, so that part is easy).

Checkouts to the production server are done via anonymous CVS, so
that if any bad guy breaks into the box he can modify only the
checked out copies of the files.

This makes it easy to (a) detect what has changed (b) fix it and
(c) save a copy if it's particularly clever.  There's a page on
the server which will kick off a checkout cgi script.

You might be able to get some of the same effect by configuring
your linux/apache to use multi-ip based hosting, so each developer
can have a private instance of the web server and a private copy
of the files.
