Why wouldn't you just use a tool like Capistrano? Capistrano can deploy from Git as well, but it follows best practices like exporting a bare copy of the repo. It also provides niceties like rollback and ordered tasks (with before/after hooks) for that moment when you realize that you need to do something outside of dumping code in to a directory. Tacking on ad hoc bash scripts is what you do when better tools aren't available.

I'm all for exploring new ways to do the same old things, but this just strikes me as terribly incomplete and introduces some bad practices, like hosting a full copy of your git repo in the httpd document root.
