One thing that you might consider doing, that shouldn't be too much work,
would be to create a virtualhost for each developer, with a different
documentroot for each developer. Then the only maintenance required to
duplicate the setup for each developer is (in theory at least) copying a few
lines of apache configuration for each user.

Then you can have each developer check out a working copy in their own
directory, and the permissions problem goes away entirely. (It also has the
advantage of allowing a single developer to break their own working copy
without preventing everyone else working :-)
