In the prior discussions, nobody came up with a reason the branches shown in
the article couldn't be done in SVN, but we should expect greater merge pain
when merging, and I would avoid major refactoring in the next release.

There was a post I read about git-svn that might be helpful.  I will try to
find that tomorrow.  It talked about what kind of Git branching can mess up
git-svn.  We should try to avoid that for now.

I think we have to be careful about making lots of branches, but I think SVN
can handle the branching in the diagram.

History will be handled however SVN handles merging and history.

That may be one thing we can't do, but I don't think that was in the
diagram, but I'm also not familiar enough with Git to say for sure.
