bzr-svn handles that case by setting properties on the svn revisions
with the revision ids of the changes you sent upstream. So if you and
your coworker have the same revisions, you push to svn and then your
coworker pulls from svn, there will be no problem because bzr will
identify the revisions pulled from svn as the same it already had.

The problem with the enforced linear history is still there,
though. Apart from that, I don't recommend bzr where git is available.
