[plt-scheme] could we have a git-svn mirror of the repository?

That pulls the entire svn history; I tried it and it died midway,
which is what prompted this whole post :) It'd be far more efficient
(and kinder to the servers!) for the maintainers to maintain a git
clone, and then let other people pull from there.
