I agree with Richard. I switched to monotone because it has a really
simple conceptual model that maps directly to its commands. _In
particular_, the network operations are strictly separated from the
version control stuff. Before even knowing monotone I've suggested a
similar approach on the tla mailing list (with no success). I can hardly
overstate that separating network access is really the only way to make
disconnected operation work reliably.
