After watching the yogscast play this map I realized that i've always wanted to make something of this style (remember my "Dynamic" maze?).
Heavily inspired by that map I started to build something very similar, but wanting to fix certain things I wasn't happy with in the original. Keep in mind I'm judging the map solely on what I see in the yogscast video. I'm too lazy to download the map.
Two days later and I have one out of 5 dungeons almost functional.
Have a look (DISCLAIMER: If redstone gives you headaches turn back now):

The picture is a bit outdated. It's bigger and badder now :O

Unfortunately command blocks don't work with bukkit and this would be impossible without them so I'm building this in single player for now. If you want the save file to test out whatever tell me.
Apparently they do work! David is hosting the world for now at
sc15.servercraft.co:10091

EDIT: Here's the last single player save I made before David decided to host (outdated): download
NOTE:
-I've only had time to code one track into the decoder. It's number 14/15 and you'll only get it if you pick easy. 1/5 chance you'll get it. It'll spawn you in the smallest of the 4 subchambers of the dungeon with all the doors closed. The other tracks will be different.
-All the easy tracks and one normal track are done.
-All the tracks for the first dungeon are now coded in which means you'll get a different track every time you hit the generate button in the difficulty selection room.
The chests are empty and there won't be any mobs. Eventually both mobs and "loot" will drop from the ceiling. The level of both will be determined by the difficulty.
It doesn't do anything except send you to the appropriate spawn room as of now. To get out, break a block in the floor. Make sure there's no redstone underneath. Block up the hole and go back to spawn to try again if you wish. It should reset properly.

PROGRESS REPORT 1:
I've perfected a hidden mob and loot delivery system. It will dispense the appropriate stuff based on difficulty. Right now I'm building some logic will make sure that will ensure drops and mobs don't get dispensed in closed areas. This part is hard and might take a while.

PROGRESS REPORT 2:
Decided to go with a decoder to decide which droppers should drop instead of adding AND gates to each dropper. That would've been super messy and ugly.
I've calculated that with 14 droppers and 3 difficulty settings i'll need 42 outputs (seriously) to the decoder, which is a lot. So far the decoder I've built is kinda double stacked and has 30 outputs. I'll have to add the remaining 12 later.
All I have left to do is hook up each dropper to a decoder output and then code the decoder (all 42 outputs). Should be fun.

PROGRESS REPORT 3:
Hooked up all 54 decoder outputs. Now to code the beast.

PROGRESS REPORT 4:
Coded the beast and with the help of Tonjevic, filled all 60 mob dispensers. Now mobs will actually "spawn" in the dungeon! The higher the difficulty, the tougher they are.
Now to decide which custom loot I want and actually put them in the dispensers.

    Refer to the picture in the OP to find spawn. Start from there.

    Moo, you might want to move the server IP and stuff around in the OP so they can find the information better.

    We were griefed, as of this writing, about nine hours ago. Bastard named HoesKnoMe. Core protect borked, and I temporarily restored from my backup, but yours is more current. Can you get that to me when you get the chance?

    I've implemented a whitelist on the (my) server till we can put up appropriate guards, and reopen it to the public again. Please leave a message here if you want to be added.

    Oh, and Moo, you may want to add this information to the OP here and on the minecraft forums.
