Now that I've switched my local git tree to the new repo (by changing
the URL for the 'origin' remote, and adding the old one as a 'gcc-old'

the ~400 local branches to be based on the new repo instead of the
git-svn mirror.

       # The local branch to update

       # The previous upstream for the branch
       upstream=$(git rev-parse --symbolic-full-name $branch@{u} | sed
-n s,^refs/heads,gcc-old,p)
       # find the last upstream commit in the branch
       base=$(git merge-base $branch $upstream)
       # extract its SVN revision
       svnrev=$(git log -1 $base | sed -n
'/git-svn-id:/s/.*@\([[:digit:]]\+\) .*/\1/p')
       # find equivalent commit in master
       onto=$(git log --pretty=format:%H --grep="From-SVN: r$svnrev" $branch@{u})

       git rebase --onto $onto $upstream $branch

Use at your own risk!

The attached script is a slightly more robust version of those commands.

Nice. I adjusted your script for my situation where I have a separate local repository for the new git (my old one is corrupt from unwise use of alternates), using format-patch/am for moving commits between them:
