There would be some disruption, because the current
synchronization method is tied to GIT and CVS.
But it wouldn't be too bad, since git-svn provides
trivial bi-directional access.
Any branches relative to the cvs-derived git repo
could be migrated to a git repo converted from svn.

Of course, any SHA1 references into the cvs-derived repo
would be worthless (but they could theoretically be translated
to point to the same objects in an svn-derived repo).

Good to know it works.  Thanks.
