Yes, I'd guess that most people using subversion check out working
copies in multiple locations with a single repository (and hopefully
have a reasonable backup scheme for the repository contents). It works
very well that way. Wandisco has some tricks to improve remote
performance but if you have reasonable connectivity you don't need it.
