I'm not sure that trying to coordinate 2 different version managers with 
something that has to represent changes as a sequentially numbered set 
of atomic operations even makes sense because all of the tracking 
references to revision numbers and time ranges will be wrong when 
looking at the copy.  Being able to clone and update from a read-only 
upstream copy while maintaining your own local branch work is probably 
one of the main reasons for the popularity of distributed vc's like git. 
  git-svn might do it, but your local work would have to be in the git 
repo it creates.
