There are real advantages to the merging workflow.  If it works well
for you, keep using it!  The biggest downside is that pulling out
patchsets to send upstream is hard.  Depending on how close you want
to stay to upstream, it may never be an issue.  And if it is, my
rebased version will always be there to help a bit.  No need to switch
to rebasing on my account.

Happy hacking,
