This is an inherent issue to using *any* centralized repository.
Projects like monotone use a completely different model that allows
private commits to a local repository with push/pull to a
more-centralized repository on demand.

Having said that, I handle things differently. I use Subversion as a
central repository, but if I need to do disconnected operations, I use
RCS or CVS on specific files to track my offline history, then merge
them back into Subversion the next time I'm online.

I'm not aware of any way to directly import the version history back and
forth, but it's not a great deal of trouble to treat my Subversion files
as a vendor branch in RCS, and just use the output of rlog as the input
to a Subversion commit (e.g. svn commit -m"$(rlog foo)" foo) when

It's not pretty, but it works. All VCSs have warts; the question is,
which warts are the ones you can live with? :)
