Advocating rebasing is a good thing, so I have to interject here. However, it 
only works as long as people are not basing their work on their branch, or are 
properly informed of it.

Personal branches should be rebased. Git's own "pu" branch is rebased every 
now and then and people know what to expect if they use that.
