That is my feeling too.  I hate to re-write published history, but the
result will be a proper clone of the SVN history with the ability to
import future tags and branches.

The sooner it happens, the less painful it will be.

So, I will rebase my master branch onto a full clone of the SVN
history this weekend---if anyone out there has cloned my repository
and made changes either submit a pull request to get them into my
master before the rebase or make a note of your commit numbers so you
can cherry-pick them afterwards.
