I can see why. It is designed to fit into your workflow. Especially with two
separate trees (ffmpeg and MythTV).

Since I do not have svn write access in MythTV and everything I
do goes to a trac ticket - StGit works well for me. But YMMV.

BTW, I highly recommend using Janne's git clone of svn over creating
your own git with git svn. It will be much easier to track history. I would
have used it if I had known about it before Janne just posted it.
