I think ZPT rocks. It's an excellent system... and combined with WebDAV or
FTP (as you mention) it does solve the WYSIWYG problem.

Source control for through the web Products has been tricky. But, the
proposed Component architecture is supposed to:

1) Make it easier than ever to write file system-based Products that can be
pieced together and configured through the web
2) Perform some amount of unification between through the web and filesystem
development (though I haven't seen much detail about that)

For larger development projects, it's probably wise to do them in the
filesystem. If you do that, you'll get access to all of your favorite tools
(editors, source control, etc.)
