Thanks.  Please sign-off your patch.

I am Cc'ing Kyle McKay who apparently had some experience working
with git-svn with newer svn that can only use serf, hoping that we
can get an independent opinion/test just to be sure.  Also Cc'ed is
Eric Wong who has been the official git-svn area expert, but I
understand that Eric hasn't needed to use git-svn for quite a while,
so it is perfectly fine if he does not have any comment on this one.

We may want to find a volunteer to move "git svn" forward as a new
area expert (aka subsystem maintainer), by the way.
