Use the just released AutoPilot -- http://drupal.org/project/autopilot

It does some interesting table inclusion / exclusion and works with
SVN revisions to push between three systems as you describe.

It's got rough edges and needs a fair amount of SysAdmin powers to get
configured, but in it's ideal state you run build.example.com (a
Drupal instance) and it manages remote systems for you.

Needed: more work on content staging (dealing with the node table and
friends) and a better / automatic way to look at DB schemas and infer
what needs clobbering and what needs merging.
