Ok, I've already mentioned it but here's my main suggestion:

Git diff format
svn {diff,patch} should be able to use the git diff format. That would
allow us to use patches for tree and mode changes. It should be
(According to a statement by Augie Fackler in
notes/svnpatch/svnpatch-git.txt) possible to our own hunk types to this
format and thereby allowing us to transfer property modifications.

After that, it gets harder. I don't have the neccessary experience to
come up with more things...


Something with authz

Something with externals

Something with HTTP performance
