You would lose the history, but this may not be too big of a deal,
really. I've been good about keeping the CHANGELOG up to date, but my
commit messages are hardly worth preserving. As a matter of fact, I had
always assumed you would import it from a local un-SVN'ified version,
and that my horrible SVN log messages would go away. :)
