Sure.  Briefly:
Give 'vcs-svn/' the ability to spit out a Subversion dumpfile.  If you
remember, we hit a brick wall last time when we needed a way to
persist mark-referenced-blobs in the fast-import stream.  Once we get
svn-fi (the reverse of svn-fe) merged, the next step is in getting a
reverse-branch-mapper to work.  The mapper will have to sit between
the repository and svn-fi, because we can't really do much with the
history on the svn end.
