I have a general question about our approach to improving support for Git.

For the purpose of submitting Git patches, it seems there can be (at least) two

(1) Make a "create-patch" script that supports creating a patch in standard
format from both SVN and Git.

(2) Make svn-apply and svn-unapply support both Git and SVN format.

(Combining both approaches may also make sense -- e.g. to address the issue in
this bug report.)

>From what I can tell, we currently do (2) to some extent, but not (1).  Has
anyone given much thought to these approaches?  Are there any reasons to prefer
(2) over (1) or vice versa, or to not do (1)?
