Not really, because I haven't needed to use SVK myself. But I've seen
it recommended on this list many times. As I understand it, you have
a central repository at work, say, but then you can get a clone of
that repository to take home with you over the weekend. Then you can
commit any number of changes to your local repository while you're
away from the central repository, and send your commits back to the
central repository when you're back in the office.

With just Subversion, you could certainly check out a working copy
from the central repository and take the working copy home and work
on it, but you couldn't commit; you'd have to just make edits at home
and commit everything when you're back at the office. Difficult if
you have many changes to make while away from the central repo.

I haven't used Unison so I can't tell you anything about how that
