Indeed, I think we don't want it in any case; it's bound to suck. We can keep 
read-only export as we did (still do?) for CVS.

git-svn can do one-shot imports as well.

I think the proposal consists of ditching svn, and hence ditching git-svn too 
(which some devs are using currently), and go to "native" git.
