It sounds like all you really need to do per-request is:

* Create a temporary directory somewhere.

* Copy the project files into this directory.

* Alter whatever file needs to be altered.

* Run xbuild from inside that directory.

* Package up the output according to your needs.

There's no reason you need to use ASP.NET to do this; anything that can
run commands should work just fine, so if you're a PHP guy, just use PHP.
