There is still the major regression with unreadable version numbers.

The problem is answering the question of "do I have it or not". Linear
version numbers are much nicer for that.

Sure. So there will never be any way to get linear version numbers with
git. ...

The topic of generation numbers has come up again recently on the git lists and it looks like they might make it in (http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6702821/git-commit-generation-numbers). Of course this isn't exactly the same as svn because the numbers are only unique within a given branch, but it should still help.
