Sorry, but this is just preemptive bad-mouting. The problem isn't that
there is no good good implementation of an svn server. The problem is that
the people working on that implementation aren't going to offer any path
that would enable other to integrate a git view on the repository. Heck,
they don't even offer a specified network protocol and insist that
*clients* use the C library.

So the only way to have a server that is viewable via git and via svn is
to rewrite the server. (Which is also good because the svn repo structure
is, well, suboptimal even for its own pourposes.) And there is obviously
enough public interest/suffering that subgit isn't even the first project
to do so - see svnhub.com.
