One of the drawbacks of these distributed version control systems is
precisely the fact that it makes it very easy to keep private "branches"

All things equal, it would work against the goal of trying to make sure
development happens in public.

That's probably a very good reason why subversion may be the best choice
for GNOME at this point.
