One partial solution to this that I've implemented in the past is to
create a framework for each user to run their own web server(s) on
separate ports. In my case it has been Apache + a backend Apache/mod_perl
server. There is a simple script to stop and start the servers, and the
ports are based on the user id (like user id + 1000).

Combine this with some pre-defined Putty (windows) or "ssh -c" bits (OSX)
and your developers can easily manage their own dev environment.

Of course, this also means that their working copy will need to be on the
server, so their editor will need to be capable of remote editing. I
believe that BBEdit can do this over FTP/SFTP, and there are Windows
editors with this capability as well.

Of course, this only solves one of their problems. The other big help
would be editor/SVN integration. This works great with Emacs, but that
probably isn't what your designers use ;)
