As of 1.5, Subversion supports write-through proxies. You'll still
have a master/slave, but users who check out from the slave can check
back in & the commit is passed back to the master.

It's not exactly a 2-way live replication (there are products like
WANDisco you can buy which can do it, I believe), but it's not bad.
