Yes, though it should be noted that this is the size of a packed git
repository (git clone at least via the git protocol always gives a
packed one, git-svn does not). An unpack repository would be several 100
MB large, in case of MPlayer > 600 MB. Luckily I found out that
git-repack can be run even while git-svn is still downloading, which is
the only way to use git-svn if you have a quota of only 200 MB or so.
