A mock conversion would probably help with creating
procedures/docs/etc as well.  It is nice to say that we're "just going
to use git" but I think everybody has a slightly different picture of
how that is going to work.

If we could set up an "official unofficial" portage tree in git based
on a one-time migration (maybe refreshing it from time to time) that
could be a sandbox used to work things out, and it would then be
replaced with the official tree.  When the official migration comes
along we'd already be experts in doing it.

All we need to do is execute the migration, and just not point the
rsync generation process at it.  Maybe it won't be perfectly right at
first, and that would basically be the point of doing it.  Devs could
update tools to work against it, and the docs could be written
alongside.
