Sorry for reacting so late, I didn't read the list carefully in the last weeks 
and my gmail filter somehow didn't trigger on that.

Note that the remote helper can only fetch, pushing is not possible at all.

This is the result of what I did when I wanted to start implementing branch 
detection. I found that the existing code is not suitable and restructured it.

The main goal is to seperate svn revision parsing from git commit creation. 
Because for creating commits, you need to know on which branch to create the 
While for finding out which branch is the right one, you need to read the 
complete svn revision first to see what dirs are changed and how.

It is rather invasive and it doesn't make sense without using it later on.
So I'm not surprised that you may not like it.
Anyways it passes all existing tests (that doesn't mean it's good of course
