If your developers truly have no access other than email to sync then
I recommend looking at one of the distributed version control systems
such as GNU Arch or Monotone or Darcs or Bazaar or ArX or others. In
the environment you describe you need a different VCS model than one
provided by Subversion. I know that Arch in particular has the
capabilities that you describe. But with an added complexity.

People have suggested svk. It is a great tool and I use it. It
interfaces well with subversion to help manage private branches. But
it is not truly an offline distributed version control system. I
doubt you would be completely happy using it as compared to using one
of the others mentioned in the hard offline environment as you
describe.
