I fully agree with having Git or Hg as the master rather than SVN.

In the past, I used both SVK and Git to access the Étoilé SVN repository, it 
proved to be a bad experience in both cases. It works well 90% time but it can 
really go wrong, especially when Git or SVN branches are involved (rebase or 
merging between branches, locally or in the master repository, giving crazy 
results). Most of time, I was not able to understand how to fix it because 
these bridges tend to be convoluted and have many caveats, given that SVN  and 
DVCS are completely different beasts.
That was few years ago, so Git-svn could be more mature now, I don't know.
