I don't think you are the only one. Even if you are, many of us work 
while traveling, so it is still an issue.

Burrokeet has many users in the developing world (I started the project 
whilst living in Trinidad and Tobago). As a result one of our goals is 
to provide full offline editing for an online CMS system with Forrest as 
the publishing engine. However, I have to admit, it is fairly low on the 
todo list. I'd be glad to work with Lenya to solve this problem once we 
have something up and running and the initial integration stuff is done.

Lets return to that when we have a system in place. I know many will 
resist totally open access, Spam is a real pain.
