It prevents the person from using the prefered tools of the project to contribute to the project. So when someone wants to get the latest sources and there is no daily snapshot tarball the user either has to fork over $4K (I think it costs that much I haven't checked recently) or violate the licence or forgo working on the project until either a snapshot is available.
