This has been discussed in the past. The existing repo will need to
remain as the super module refers to the hash values of its commits.
The suggested fix was to combine the two repos, since a git repo can
contain two separate trees. The old branches will need to be kept
alive by tagging them.
I'd rather have kept the two separate by using a different name for
the converted repo (e.g. svn-predef), but no one agreed with me.
