No.  gitup is a replacement for cvsup in checkout mode.  Which may
well be what people want, but let's not pretend that it is a
replacement for svnlite.

There is no history.  You updated your machine, and now subsystem
X is broken.  You could check the history, identify a suspicious
commit, revert it and fix your machine while you contact the
committer.  Not with gitup.

In fact, svnlite allowed to contribute (i.e. commit) to FreeBSD,
which none of the suggested alternatives permit.
