I'm really just shooting for the "out of box" experience with Etch on Alphs to be "stable".

I know (and use) the newer versions of glibc - I would just rather that people *choose* to use a newer version instead of being required to get something from testing or unstable.
(and some organizations might have a "stable"-only policy).
