I don't know anything about DreamWeaver, but I've seen lots of other 
templating systems over the years, and they've always had some 
relatively-easy-to-recognize technique for separating template-text from 
everything else.  Assuming that's the case for DreamWeaver, you could write a 
commitinfo hook that checked the file being committed for changes *inside* 
the template area and disallow the commit if any are found.  That would leave 
the programmer with a file he couldn't check in, but that's sort of the idea 
after all :-)
