Cheers. I've had a little look at this before, but there are 2 problems I
see with this. Firstly, it's built against 1.1.4 of SubVersion and we use
1.2, so there may be issues there.

The other is that from what I can gather, SVK works by ultimately connecting
to the central repository. This would be great for laptop users that can
bring their laptops into work every now and then, but our users would be
developing on hoem PCs. The only connection the remote worker has with the
office is email (or an FTP dumping area). So I'm not sure how the users
would communicate their changes back and forth, or get those from the office
