Maybe The PSF could fund Eric Raymond to do this?  He's got
beyond-the-basics tooling, and a fair bit of experience converting
large projects.  He might even be able to clean up the older (svn)
history along the way, although that might be too much to hope for ;)

(Oh, and let me mention this while I'm thinking about it: we're going
to have to do some extra work to make the hash links work in the bug
tracker, since I don't think there's any a priori way to distinguish
between hg hashes and git hashes.)
