You can already do it with svk or git-svn.

This is definitely a killer feature, but there is no design limitation
preventing implementation of such a feature in subversion. A working
svn-bisect script would definitely be a worthwhile contribution.

It should be noted this is only the case for git, not for other DSCMs.
Furthermore, svk also noticeably improves performance on svn

As several people already stated, most of git's improvements are already
available to those who love git thanks to git-svn. It strikes me that we
would actually lose svn's killer feature (simplicity) if the whole
repository is migrated to git.
