No probably about it for me. I pretty much own Blitz's source code being the
only contributor with edit rights on version control but I routinely make
use of branching (or equivalent) to avoid that situation where I've got
something tightly mixed into trunk that turns out to be a horror and needs
removing again or substantial re-jigging.

I cannot see any way in which all developing on trunk regardless of size of
change is going to work for multiple contributors....
