Good luck with that :-/ You know that committing a git revision to svn
means rebasing, which in turn means that the revision adquires a new
identity, and then everyone who had that revision gets confused, right?
(Just an observation, let's not start a discussion about combined
git/svn development.)

Every new supported build setup introduces a large cost on terms of
maintenance. Sorry, but I don't think that your case justifies that
