I tried that method but got this error:

Data from a previous version of git-svn exists, but
        (required for this version (1.7.8.msysgit.0) of git-svn) does not exist.

In any case, before I persist, can you say that this method definitely
circumvents issues that arise when you have existing GitHub and
wordpress.org SVN repos, each with separate revision histories? That
was the only sticking point with Boone Gorges' method - things fell
apart when rebasing.
