FWIW, I use git-svn in a project where the hosting server only allows
SVN, since I'm more used to git, and it does not require any special or
costly operation. You just initialize the repo once like you would when
using svn, and then you can work as if you were using plain git, except
that "git svn dcommit" replaces "git push".
