I stumbled over this as well.
As a tag and a branch is "the same" in svn, the best thing we can do
is to keep the svn tags as git branches, in the same way svn does.

Would it work if you make a script to tag the svn tags with a different name,
like "git_tag_v1.0" or so ?

Otherwise: just set up a test repo and see what happens ;-)
