Dooh, I am now the main target of this witch burning fest! :)

Well, I would approve to go distributed. Though I am not sure the
other committers (over 50) would, and I understand them. We would have
to agree on a lead developer, which would of course cause problem.
This won't magically fix all the problem though. Spending long hours
to merge a branch with nice features but also bugs is painful and a
long list of changeset. As much as is bug finding.
Yet, this might help to resolve personnal conflicts...
Well, let's schedule a meeting.
