No, svk is _exactly_ what you want for the disconnected people (as long as they
are running Win32). svk allows an individual user to:

1) mirror a normal svn repository locally;
2) make a local copy of the mirror for development purposes;
3) resync the mirror and merge changes down to the local copy;
4) merge changes from the local copy back to the mirrored repository.

#4 looks just like a regular commit on the remote svn repository (with some
extra properties), so your LAN connected people will not notice anything
different. The merges in #3 are intelligent, so it is very easy to keep your
local repository in sync with very little effort.
