OK, I've mismatched your reply and the patch number. So my new questions
are:

Do you object to the feature as such? Or would you like to remove the
legacy code too? Or is the code/doc/... in bad shape beyond what E.S.
already mentioned?

Right now my team performs a hefty "git filter-branch" after each "git
svn fetch" followed by black magic to set the new object ids in the
caches / rev-maps of git-svn. Official support for "no synthetic email"
would be much easier.
