I only have a full git-svn --stdlayout copy, so basically "no", though
"partially" is also right:

* I (can) have branches (needs to co remote/name; co -b name)
* I (can) have tags (huh, they looks like branches)
* I *don't* have proper merges (the history is linear)
* I *don't* have proper authors

Not sure how to fix this (especially merges, I have a script for the
authoring part somewhere, and I think that true branches and tags should
be easily created with a tiny script) but Jiří seems to know some ways.
