I think the i18n team will, after they've leaned git of course, have
the benefit the most. Pulling remote translations, trees for
translators etc. (I'm not entirly into git yet, mostly because we're
not using it for xfce, so hopefully i'm not talking crap here ;).

I wouldn't mind, but I can live with svn for a while... But if people
volunteer to help with the switch, I wouldn't wait, since spare time
if valuable here ^_^.
