well, this is certainly an option... but if we were to do this i'd still want
to have sarge/etch/lenny php5 in the same location for sanity's sake.  but 
it shouldn't be such a great deal of effort to do that:

  for dist in sarge etch lenny squeeze sid experimental (chronological order)
    for distrelease in "" -security -proposed-updates
      if it makes sense
        download .dsc+diff+orig.tar.gz
	branch from previous dist-distrelease branches (or empty one for first)
        git-import-dsc the files to new debian/upstream branches
        git tag the current version

this could probably be done entirely manually within a couple hours on
a lazy saturday morning.  the conversion of the svn stuff would be nice
to have and a good academic exercise, but i honestly can't motivate the
effort to do it... what do folks think if we just cop out and take an
easier path like this?

mark, could you chime in a bit more on what you've already done for php 5.3 and
the git repo you mentioned?

in the meantime, since there's general agreement and interest for moving to
git i'll go ahead and submit a ticket to alioth for whatever we'll eventually
put there.
