This isn't about git-svn but about the svn remote helper.  The same
considerations would apply to any other foreign repository importer
that uses "git fast-import --cat-blob-fd".  So I would like to make
sure it is at least possible to support such a thing in the Cygwin
and mingw ports.

I'm not sure I follow.  Are you saying Windows users would never want
to access Subversion repositories?
