remote-svn now uses get_fetch_map to retrieve the local refs. So it respects 
the fetch refspec in the config.

If I change the default fetch refspec in .git/config to 
'fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/svn/svnfile/*' it works.

If the remote-helper only advertises the private refspec, but the config and 
remote->fetch is unchanged, it works also as long as the import target is 
consistent (of course).

So we do not want helpers to import to remotes/ but to their private svn/ in 
this case? (ignoring the config?)
