There is no proof that more contributors will suddenly appear just
because the tool has changed.
As people noted, a contributor can fairly easily do
  $ svn co ...
  ... modify trunk ...
  $ svn diff > issue.patch

I can hardly see how this 2-steps procedure can be a barrier to new
bringing new contributions.

So changing the tool is a matter of taste (and I understand that).
Perhaps the choice can be done on a per-project basis?
