It sounds like avoiding use of git-svn is the big benefit to git users and perhaps the reason this topic periodically comes up. Can anyone spell out in more detail the benefits of using straight git instead of git-svn?

My main pain point with the current workflow, which can potentially be repaired by using a real git workflow, is the manual changelog editing, rather than using commit messages.
With a git workflow we can review commit messages as part of the regular review process, which I understand we can't do with SVN (though I don't know SVN that well).

Wouldn't a world without manual changelog editing be slightly nicer?
