I don't think it matters too much whichever way you stack your photos.  The following post on www.photomacrography.net provides a good analysis of both methods:

The writer of the first post, Rik Littlefield, is the developer of Zerene Stacker, probably the most highly regarded stacking software available.

I am not sure if there is anything available which can automatically adjust lens focus positions by a small amount by rotating the focus ring, but there are a couple of automated stacking rails (and many manual ones) which move the camera a small amount.  The Stackshot rail is an "electronically controlled macro-rail that coordinates the movement of the rail and the triggering of the camera."
