Couldn't you use something like CVSup and automatically trigger its
execution after every check in?
Is there more to a multisite repository than meets the eye?
(I assume the poster is aware that cvs works just fine half way around the
world from the repository.)

No, it doesn't.  It is possible to mirror the repository, but not to
have multiple equal sites.

There are several obvious difficulties in having such a multisite
repository, things like race conditions.  I don't know how other
systems with multisite repositories handle these, or if they do
at all well.
