There is the potential for harm in being seen to be "forking" the
project, but there would be considerable good in having some sort of
access to a code repository.

This actually sounds like a case for using one of the patch-oriented
distributed SCMs (e.g. - like Monotone, Darcs, git), where those
patches would actually have a place to be expressed.
