It's not an invalid advantage by any stretch.  And yet, in an 
environment with two primary committers with deific control over the 
core repo, you can see how I would feel oddly about this.

I mean, I can't set permissions on my own repo for developers I trust 
with my vision, but any old gardener can come along and modify my code 
as they see fit?

I know I'm not the only one that sees something weird going on here.
