Ugh, I always forget the API, too.  Perhaps command_noisy should
be made to respect signals in exit codes (the rest of git-svn is
compromised by this behavior in command_noisy, too, it turns out... :x)

I'm not sure what else would break if command_noisy were changed,
git-svn appears to be the only user in git.git.
