Version caching

I have a question about version caching. I am using the latest
(stable) version on both Linux and WinSlows.

As I understand Subversion, once a version is committed, basically it
can never changed. A version is written in stone.

If that is true, I was hoping Subversion could cache each versioned
copy that it downloads. Currently, it seems running "log", "diff",
and "merge" takes quite some time (I am very far away from my
Subversion server at work... half the world.)

Is there an add-on or option I can use to ask Subversion to never
throw away a version it sees? That way if I run "log" or "merge" or
"diff" against an older version I have seen before... poof! it is
immediately available.

I thought about mirroring the server in read-only mode, but I really
just want a local cache for versions that I might be looking at.

Cheers. Great product... keep it up!
