Some years ago, I was working pretty productively with a 8 GB big repo, 
around 100k revisions, 30 different authors. The initial git-svn clone took 
a couple of days to complete (over LAN connection to SVN server), but after 
that it was fine. I used a Mac, but I know people on Windows quickly run 
into performance problems.

Once you run into the limitations of git-svn, you can consider reposurgeon 
[1], or the commercial offerings from SubGit [2].
