Hear, hear.  I *don't* put unstable before frozen, but I take flak for that
position because people want XFree86 3.3.3, *NOW*, damnit, and they don't
seem to care too much about me wrestling to the ground for slink.

Though in truth, it has been almost a month since the last release of X,
and I really need to get another one out soon.  My only defense is that I
think I have been psychologically exhausted by 7 releases of X in short
order, and probably more like 20 compile cycles of it.
