Subversion does support off-line 'diff' operations (usually the operation 
most people do off-line).  log/update/commit still require a network 
connection.  However, Subversion also provides much more efficient network 
utilization than CVS.  I know that was a prime reason why Xerces-P moved 
over to Subversion from CVS as one of the main contributors was behind a 
dial-up and couldn't work with CVS but could use Subversion.  -- justin
