Answer: SVN is designed for WAN. That is, it assumes network is a
scarce resource and thus is optimized to use it as little as possible.
It sends only file "diffs" in both directions over the network, and many
commands are optimized to not use the network at all.

Still, SVN has no database replication. It is a centralized system. If
you're looking for a "distributed" system, try SVK
(http://svk.elixus.org), which is a separate product that builds on top
of Subversion's libraries.
