I need it to keep my sanity level.

Have you tried to do git log vs svn log?

ondrej at howl:~/Projects/pkg-php/php-src$ time git log > /dev/null

real	0m1.236s
user	0m1.216s
sys	0m0.020s
ondrej at howl:~/Projects/pkg-php/php-src$ cd ../php-src-5.4
ondrej at howl:~/Projects/pkg-php/php-src-5.4$ time svn log > /dev/null

real	2m49.669s

I am not forcing anybody to use it, I am just sharing the result of
git svn clone, so you don't have to run it again if you want to use
