No to people who use git regularly, it isn't.  git-svn imposes all sorts
of restrictions on what kind of commits it wants to see and the git user
ends up having to work around them.  Things that are trivial with git
(merges) become more complicated with git-svn.  This in turn
fundamentally changes how git can be used by the developer.
