I don't *need* an official one. It just would make life a lot easier.
Git-svn is much much slower at pulling down history than regular git.
Svn can't be mirrored by repo.or.cz. My workflow for FFmpeg is to
register forks from mirrors at repo.or.cz and push there. It works
fine for FFmpeg because FFmpeg/libswcale has a git mirror. With
MPlayer there are several infrequently updated git repositories, some
patched some vanilla. It just seems like since there already is a
git.mplayerhq.hu that tracks svn for FFmpeg/libswscale, adding MPlayer
there wouldn't be too much trouble.

I'm merged up to yesterday's HEAD.
