background replication of repositories

I'm looking for methods of producing distributed repositories. SVK
seems like the definitive choice, but from what I've read so far,
appears to suffer from needing access to the "master" repository when
doing merges into the master repository.

Has anyone built a system over subversion using the clearcase multisite
style of replication? Ie, each geographic location "owns" a branch,
checks out from that branch, checks into that branch, and then those
changes are transported automagically, batch style, in the background,
to the other copies of that branch, all of which are read-only.

The downside, of course, is that every site needs to merge in the
changes from their siblings if they also want write access to that
code. The big win is that no one has to sit around waiting for
transactions to take place over a thin wire.

Anyone done anything like this or working on anything similar?
