The reason the zone idea was raised was to work around the potential
load git-svn would put on the svn server. If we only had a single
git-svn mirror pulling from svn and all other git users pulling from
that mirror, then there would be no need to worry about the load on

But as discussed, the expectation is that svn.eu.apache.org should be
able to deal also with git-svn load (which, as Santiago mentioned,
might even be less or at least not noticeably higher than that from
normal svn clients), so for now I don't think we need the zone, just
some patience to wait until the current svn server crisis is over.
