Agreed.  The best I can offer here is the results of the very incomplete test
suite, and the fact that I am using the latest version of BusyBox in my
own systems here at work.  Most of the core apps have not had much done 
to them, and they are getting a fair ammount of external testing from folks
that use BusyBox as well.  

I think the best thing to do here is pick and choose the bugs that folks
want fixed for the boot floppies (looking over the latest changelog will 
help here), and then back port fixes from the latest and greatest.
