We're trying to go this route too. The difficulty is weaning designers off of 
Dreamweaver, or, if they want to use it, to have it work with PHP.

It'll take time, but we're slowly getting there. One of the designers wanted 
something changed in the meta tags on a large site. She asked me if I could 
do a search and replace or something similar. No need I said, edited the php 
include file in about 20 secs, reloaded the pages and showed her that it was 
done. It took a while to explain how it all worked (the idea of server side 
processing being a little new) but eventually we reached that "Aha! Thats 
pretty cool!" sort of space.
