Why don't you have a working copy for dreamweaver. Then the workflow
is...

   Local-Hard-Drive$ svn update
   ... Do stuff...
   Local-Hard-Drive$ svn commit

Or use tortoisesvn for that step. All GUI that way. Then on the
webserver

   Dreamweaver-WC-on-Webserver$ svn update

You can make a simple CGI to do that last step. Or even a post-commit
script that does it automatically on every commit.

That's how we do it around here (the automatic post-commit). Users don't
ever see the CLI but the remote server always has the latest version.
They use TortoiseSVN and local working copies (one per desktop). But
dreamweaver always sees the HEAD of the repository.

NB: we don't actually use dreamweaver but it's the same idea.
