I don't see what would be "dicey" about it. The svn.webkit.org ->
git.webkit.org step is the fragile one; after that it's just a simple "git
push" to get things over to GitHub. This sounds like a pretty good approach
to me, though of course it will cause some havoc for people who have
already been doing work using the current GitHub repository.
