I've used an export of the web directory via WebDAV/HTTPS, and a cron job to
do the updates on a scheduled basis. Alternatively, if the directory can be
exported via CIFS or AFS (as a more reliable and secure from off-site
network directory mounting technique), the user can then do their own
updates in order to do their own resolution of any conflicts.

OpenAFS to Linux and Windows clients is something I've used in the past, but
I've never tried a subversion location with it. Unfortunately, too many web
editing tools auto-expand URL's for you, so that "href=filename.html"
becomes "hrefe=file:///E:/webdir/filename.html", and life gets severely
