	I personally think if it is experimental tothe extent that it
 may damage your system, it should not be in unstable at all, which
 periodically is turned into stable.

	If it is experimental, pout it in projects/experimental. I
 also find putting the instability of the package in the description
 aesthetically unpleasant, for what that is worth. 

 If anger is not restrained, it is frequently more hurtful to us, than
 the injury that provokes it.  -- Seneca
