First, this should read "but I *want* to be able to have multiple branches
checked out at all times".  I'm not sure where that extra "don't" came

What's the point?  It just adds more work for me.  It means I have to run
the git-svn update, git pull, and then git-update scripts every time I
want to update a WC repo.  Admittedly I believe there *is* a git-svn
synced repo at work that I might be able to pull from, so I *may* be able
to set it up just like GnuCash.  I may need to play with that.
