This is the only point that I think has much merit. Again, I'm not advocating 
anything, but as our vcs and project management systems evolve, I think we 
ought to keep the possibility of using different vcs mechanisms for core and 
contrib in mind. There are certainly drawbacks, but given that the needs and 
workflows are pretty different, it could, on balance, be beneficial to reflect 
that in the underlying organization of the vcs.
