acl sticky bit

I have a web application that I want to restrict access to on the
server. There are a couple of devs that need to have write access and
we have an already established group for that. So all the files belong
to that group and the stick bit is set. I removed all access to the
files by world and then set an acl to allow apache to read the file.
The problem is that a lot of text editors copy the old file as a back up
and then write out the file as new when they save. That means I lose
all of my acls since the stick bit doesn't apply. I know I can add
apache to the group, but that weakens security. Is there a better
solution that I'm not aware of(besides switching text editors)?
