Are you sure we need a 2-way connection. It is possible to import the
entire history with git-svnimport, which is IMHO the way to go if we are
going to switch to git entirely.
git-svn is only developed for a single developer to keep his projects in
sync with a subversion archive more easily. It is not intended to be
shared amongst multiple developers.
