What are peoples thoughts on this? It's not (despite appearances) an 
argument against BitKeeper due to licensing concerns, but rather a short 
  paper on why the author believes the "pyramid" patch/development 
system is a bad idea.

Alexandre has shown a strong preference for Arch being the future of 
Wines development, which basically implies a pyramid development model. 
So I thought this document would be of interesting.
