It works fine as long as you want to work on something alone, but I want to
do some bigger things (at least start them) that others should be able to
test. And that doesn't work with git-svn. Additionally you can't mix
different git-svn clones with each other, so moving a branch from one of my
machines to another requires to setup 1 git-svn clone on a central machine
thats reachable from everywhere and from which I then dcommit. Thats almost
as useless as branching in svn (I wouldn't have thought I'd say that a year
ago, but after working with git for 6 months I changed my mind).

Tomorrow, this will be part of the unchangeable past but fortunately,
it can still be changed today.
