Hrmmm, sounds like a lot of overhead on the MUD server.  You could use
FTP but that would require giving FTP access to all the builders
(something I wouldn't even consider doing).

I would suggest writing a separate server which the offline editor
(client) can interface to on its own port.  You can then control access
to world files, or even individual rooms, mobs, etc on a per-user basis
and implement all the locking controls you want plus you wouldn't have
to worry about bogging down the CM server.
