There is svk ( - it's a distributed version
control system built on top of Subversion.

It can be used to mirror [parts of] remote repository and to create
"offline branches" for personal expirements. Svk also supports advanced
star-merge algorithm for merge-tracking and usually works much faster
than svn.

And the best part: svk is a pure client-side application and it requires
no modifications to SVN server.
