Just my 2c git svn is more or less a semi working bridge, which bridges 
two systems almost non bridgable in their details.
I have used git-svn for the last half year against Apache repos and I am 
still undecided whether it is worth it, on one hand I love
the local commits which I then can sync into one dcommit against the 
server (which I would hate to lose) on the other hand git-svn has its 
fair share of problems
(especially if you do more complicated stuff against the svn side+the 
sync time on the apache svn servers which need a commit delay period 
between two revision commits)
and the lack of svn external support currently lets me rethink my usage 
Unfortunately HGs SVN support is even worse, and
native support of HG or Git is probably out of scope for now (even if it 
would be supported many projects probably would not migrate)

Kind of a sad situation of having those wonderful systems and not being 
able to use them to their full extent.
