No, I think it's a bit premature to be talking about that, and switching
to git is a much larger undertaking than just shuffling modules around.
Even if the git-svn repos seem to work pretty well, I wouldn't feel
comfortable without more testing. Not to mention we'd need an entirely
new infrastructure on the server (which I'm working on) for auth, setup,
and fine-grained permissions. Also think of the impact on the i18n team...
There's also the question as to whether the rest of the devs even *want*
to switch. I'd be happy with it, but I won't try to speak for Olivier,
Jasper, Benny, Nick, etc...
We can certainly revisit this in a few months, though, after we have a
working git infrastructure on mocha and all the bugs have been ironed out.
