You have a carbon-based error then; there is relatively little for
Subversion (or any software package at all) to deal with that. You may
want to consider a continuous build environment and require tagging of
known good revisions prior to promotion to production (i.e. production
only runs from a tag). It is really a bad idea to rely on knowing
when/who ran 'svn up' into a production environment (think mixed
revision working copies).

However, it's still a project communications issue, but by appropriate
choice of policy, you can track the kind of "who broke the website"
information that you seem to want... ;-)
