I feel that a reasonable working cycle is to have a local git clone of the git 
mirror, do whatever you want there: branch, commit, merge changes from the 
head, etc..., publish your branch on gitourious or github or whatever and when 
you are done, you prepare a patch agains the git mirror current state (which is 
the same as the svn current state) and apply it to your svn checkout. 

This is the pattern I follow and I do not see any inconvenience in maintaining 
a main repo in the svn style (centralized) and having single developers peruse 
the distributed style. Do you?

Given our poor familiarity with git (especially when you start branching like a 
mad and trying then to merge all these branches -- i get lost very easily in 
doing that) this has the advantage that everybody can mess with their own repos 
but seldom the main svn repo is messed up.
