I agree.

On the line endings, I seem to remember reading somewhere that problems these
days are basically only from wrong conversions of existing repos (no source,
sorry). So I guess we should a) check all files in SVN (in all branches we
still care about) and give them the correct properties, and possibly b) create
a new repo with a current git-svn that might do the conversion better than
whatever old version was used for the current ones. b) would invalidate all
existing git repos, and I'm not sure that step is necessary (but then, it
shouldn't be that hard to rebase possible existing branches on the new repo).
