I am actually using git, although I am using the older git-svnimport
script. I noticed the newer git-svn, but hadn't taken the time yet to
figure out how it works. I noticed it can do a lot more then purely
incrementally importing from an svn tree. I should definitely have a
look at it. Thanks for your encouragement! :)

Of course, even with the best version control system (being GIT of
course ;) [*]) won't fix conflicts for you :)
