I admit I don't know much about bitkeeper, except its license is a bit
weird...

NOT TRUE!!!

Imagine you want to develop a massive new feature for Postgres.  You just
create a branch on your own machine, do all your changes, commits, etc. and
keep it current with the main branch. Then, you can merge it back into the
main tree...  That way you can have a history of commits on your own branch
of the repo!

Disclaimer:  Have only read docs, not actually _used_ 'arch'... :(
