Using a DVCS was already under discussion with a few pros for using
git. Maybe you can search a bit inside archive of this list. There has
been a huge number of mails around start of June. 

Beside of the advantages/disadvantages mentioned there I don't see that
this will be able to solve the issue, that some of the 'core'devs needs
to review a patch before merging it into official trunk.
