SVN import: Use one log call
One "svn log" (or its equivalent) per revision adds delay and server load. Instead, open two SVN connections -- one for the log, and one for the files. Positive side effect: Only those log entries which actually contain data are committed => no more empty commits. Also, change the "-l" option to set the maximum revision to be pulled, not the number of revisions. Signed-off-by: Junio C Hamano <junkio@cox.net>

You must escape forward slashes.
--l <max_num_changes>::
- Limit the number of SVN changesets we pull before quitting.
- This option is necessary because the SVN library has serious memory
- leaks; the recommended value for nontrivial imports is 100.
+-l <max_rev>::
+ Specify a maximum revision number to pull.
- git-svnimport will still exit with a zero exit code. You can check
- the size of the file ".git/svn2git" to determine whether to call
- the importer again.
+ Formerly, this option controlled how many revisions to pull, due to
+ SVN memory leaks. (These have been worked around.)
