Yes, but you can't use (easily) an incomplete repo like we use for our
packages in SVN, with git to easily do builds, edit patches etc.
So my point is that using SVN for a package kills the distributed
model that git svn would offer since you still need to do some
non-trivial hacking to make bulds, patches, anyhting else that is
facilitated by svn-buildpackage.
