I don't think subversion is the right vc software for you in this case. It
only works with centralised repositories and all tricks I can think of would
suffer from the slow and unreliable connection as well and also would need
some kind of inter-repository look. I for example used rync to synchronise
two copies of the same repository to have a local one at work and at home,
synchronising them always before I did something. It's faster this way but
very dangerous even just with two copies and _one_ developer.

Check out other VC SW which supports decentralised repositories, e.g.
SVK (comes from subversion) or Bazaar. I can't tell you anything more about
them because I only used subversion and a little CVS so far.

Best,
Martin
