Uhm... sounds scary.
As I've been doing git-svn for postgis  and geos  too I wonder
how do you plan to import changes people submit to other git repo.
Wouldn't all those commits need to be re-written for submission to
I mean, in case you'll ever use submitted changes, the public repositories
used for requesting the pull _from_ would need to be rewritten to be
in sync with git-svn, resulting in a mess. Or am I missing something ?
