It's nicely packaged by people for Mac OS X and win32, and is available
in most distribution as binary.

You don't need a local branch, you commit to checkout of the mirror and it works
just as normal svn client. And you can use commit -P to generate patch rather
than actually committing.

For the local repository, hust think it as a wc replacement in your case.

At work we use svk, as the repository is 1.3G, svn checkout of trunk takes
20min and 2.2G space; where as svk mirror is, of course, 1.3G, and the checkout
takes 7min and 750M, so you actually save time and space.

Cheers,
