Git/cogito is too new, I doubt anybody uses that except the Linux kernel

Have you looked at SVK? It can complement Subversion nicely. With the
Subversion/SVK combination you can get the benefits of both centralized
and distributed version control - whichever suits you most. I.e. there
is a centralized Subversion repository, but each developer can mirror it
locally with SVK and work offline, synchronizing with the master
repository from time to time.
