Install git-svn on Windows

The git-svn tool is a simple conduit for changesets between Subversion and Git. It provides a bidirectional flow of changes between a Subversion and a Git repository.

The latest msysgit distribution of Git for Windows (version 1.6.1 preview 20081227 at the time of this writing), does not come bundled with the the git-svn tool. This can be installed on Windows using the Cygwin distribution of Git, however.
