And using code that has not been presented as fit for production use, and
then getting *mad* about it, doesn't make it more suitable for production
use.  If you use unstable in production, and you do so because you
*accept* the risk associated with unstable's instability, cheers --
though you are either braver or more foolish than I. :)  It's when users
have unreasonable expectations of how unstable will behave that the
problems arise.
