Yet another useful thing I've missed in the git-svn manpage. Thanks!

In fact, it seems you can just specify "-rHEAD" and you'll get a repo
with only the latest trunk revision in it. If the resulting repository
can gracefully handle updates that add new branches, and new commits on
old branches that haven't been imported, this would probably be the best
approach for Git-using potential contributors.
