Actually in SVK a local repo _is_ a local repo. It _may_ (or may not)
have some metadata in it that points to another repo from which it can
sync. The syncing bits are provided by the SVN::Mirror and VCP Perl
modules, and are not in fact part of the core SVK code. The core SVK code
is a VC system based on subversion that uses local repositories and its
own working copy code.

But you could create a local repo and start checking stuff into it without
ever syncing against an existing repo first.
