"Aces" in your sleeve? You mean you're keeping the development process
intentionally closed to discourage forkers? What?

There's no reason you can't have a public SVN with read only access to
everyone except your chosen few. Google code or sourceforge would work

Why does all this discussion go on in the openmoko mailing list
anyway? Why don't you have your own project forums/bug
tracking/mailing list/whatever?
