We use option #1 where the SVN server is in the main office and we use
ssh+svn to access it. We have multiple users in the main office and
multiple people working from offsite locations (each person is in a
different remote location).

As long as you're not trying to push huge files (>100MB) around, things
should be fast enough. SVN is pretty efficient over the wire for most

And you can always move to SVK later (AFAIK) if you absolutely need to
setup remote repositories.
