I'd highly recommend to go with git. We're moving to git anyway, so 
integrating your project with KDE's repositories will be much easier if it's 
already git. (Moving a project from gitorious to git.kde.org should be a 
matter of a few minutes when it's all set up.)
If you go with svn, we'll have to write svn2git rules for the project and then 
convert it to git. As our conversion to git is in full progress, this would 
seem like a bad decision to me.
