Now that contributions are being made on GitHub, it seems there is a lot of
noise in the repo's history from merge commits.

Would it make sense to instate a policy where commits must be rebased on
top of master before merging/pushing?

(The rebase would have to be done by folks with commit access—namely Apple
employees, for now.)

Just a thought,
