There shouldn't be much difference in bandwidth whether you svnsync twice a day or immediately
after every revision is committed; svnsync replays the commits in order so they're going to
be the same size either way.

No users will be writing to the LAN mirror; all users will be writing to the master repository
on the WAN, even those users who checked out from the LAN mirror. This is accomplished by
setting up a write-through proxy.
