Just wondering: a lookup approach, does that address the original
problem that started this whole discussion? I.e.: how to avoid the
information loss when importing from GIT into a Subversion repository?
Since GIT has those additional attributes (display name and email
address?) annotated with every commit, a lookup approach is in general
not sufficient to store this information ...

Not important I think, but I'm just noting the discrepancy ...
