What's a weekend-warrior? If it involves making changes without the wc,
you would just copy the modifed version back to the correct place in a
the wc and commit it like any other edit.

Why is copying a file out to edit and replacing it in its original
location in the WC any different from any other edit? And why don't
you take a complete copy of the wc directory for offline work even if
you don't have access to the server all the time?
