Only suggested it really because we use it extensively at work (not
because I know anything about it :).

We have a bucketload of remote sites, with connection speeds and
latency varying from dialup to 512/128k ADSL to 3Mb/s BDSL to two-way
satellite. I believe we have DFS configured such that the Windows
server at each site will trickle changes back to HQ using spare
bandwidth, and vice-versa. It's not the most elegant solution, and
requires that you're careful to limit what gets replicated around to
stay within the bandwidth limit, but it works for us.
