There's an easier solution here:

Bob pushes to a branch or to a public repo ( ie: github ) , and then
contacts Alice ( or somebody else ) who pulls their changes into the
tree on their behalf.

Its not "ideal" but better than nothing. And certainly better than
being stuck on SVN where this case is virtually guaranteed and with no
viable workarounds when it is encountered.
