Is it an offline tool? one of the strong points of git-svn and
associated tools is that I can used them online. Also the response time
is very fast, be my machine online or not. This makes a big difference.
And once a project is loaded the code is easy to keep updated while
online (mostly just a "git svn rebase", sometimes the authors file must
be upgraded, if an authors file is used for correlation with svn ids).
