One other possibility (though I haven't tried to do this yet) is to use svk on
Windows, since the WC's do not contain a .svn directory with textbase (in other
words they look like ordinary directories).

The problems to overcome are numerous, however:

1) The SWIG Perl bindings must work under Win32 (which I don't know if they do);

2) You will have to have a local repository on each machine (so you still have
some [possibly] significant disk storage);

3) At least now, svk is only available as a commandline utility.
