I'm not sure subversion is the right tool in the first place if you
can't arrange good network connectivity.

Maybe something more drastic like git-svn would be a better approach if
you have to think twice about making a connection. I'm not sure how it
handles the remote repository connection when you need it, though.

If it is just a matter of firewall restrictions, maybe the people that
need them could arrange some sort of vpn to bypass it.
