Wow,  seems to implement pretty much what I'd expect from a proper
conversion svn->git. However I'm not sure if and how the
pkg-ocaml-maint specific hacks can be generalized.
For pkg-multimedia we decided that implementing that was not worth the
efford, but maybe has fun with adapting  for pkg-multimedia? Or
perhaps even someone from debian-devel is willing to generalize that
script for inclusion in git-buildpackage?
