Are you sure? My blog has way more activity because of robots indexing
it than human readers, just to give you an example... Those robots are
way more demanding consumers than the humans that come here.

A git-svn clone copied (scp) to a different machine will just behave as
a working copy (for trunk + each branch) scp-ied to a different machine
re: load. Thus, if several people in the same project are going to use
git-svn, it is a good idea to have one "solid" clone done and replicate
it. Even if later ones are going to access svn, they are not going to
reload the whole history from the server.
