I'd say that pretty much depends on your round-trip time. The initial
'git svn clone' can take seriously long; I did one for a repo that
yields 328 commits in 450 seconds, over a consumer DSL line (via http
portforwarded via ssh). The regular operations will take about as long as
ther native svn counterparts, except that you can batch commits.

Also, one can prepare the git-svn clone once (and possibly while being
colocated with the server), and use it as a template instead of doing
additional full 'git svn clone's.

In the 450 seconds there were a few occurrences of a trunk directory
appearing and vanishing within tags, but otherwise the roundtrip time
was the limiting factor, not the bandwidth.
