OK, since we now also have support for multiple source directories, I 
suggest the following:

1. If a file path or class name appears twice within any of the source 
directories, then die with a meaningful error.

2. If a file path or class name appears twice within any of the include 
directories, then die a meaningful error.

3. If a file path or class name appears once in a source directory and 
also in an include directory, then use the version from the source 
directory and continue with a meaningful warning.

I use git-svn and my usual workflow is to simply rebase a branch on top 
of trunk with git locally, and then replay all the commits one by one. 
This is pretty easy to do and avoids the hassle of svn merges.
