I think it definitely would help. However, write access may pose a problem, 
especially if we don't want everyone to be able to change every bit of the 
tree. What may be easier is semi-automatic updates, with a human (i.e. you:-) 
in the loop. Developers would mail diffs to you in an easy to recognize way (a 
different mail alias would probably be easiest), and after a quick check you 
would just feed the mail messages into patch and do the commit.
