I've been using SVK for years, and now I'm using SVK at my new job and
doing a talk tomorrow to the rest of the team on why they might want to
do the same. I'm using "disconnected" to mean "work on my own stuff
for a while and not break the buildboxes with my stupidity." I have a
local branch for each bug ticket I work on and I push to the main repo
in as few chunks as possible (since this makes merging somewhat simpler).

Some of the merging pain will go away with 1.5.0, but I don't forsee
stopping using SVK anytime soon (unless my boss makes me). So don't
think that disconnected/distributed development is strictly for the
airborne or 'Netless... ;-)
