One thing is not being able to use one routine or two because
there is a bug. Another is not being able to do anything because
the maintainer didn't test "hello world" for a library of this size.
Things like Qt should not be rushed and do require _a_lot_ of time
to set up properly.

Unstable != experimental :)

This is not new - the packages b/f 12-20-2002 were broken. Now these
new ones are even more broken. We only got mostly working Qt
libraries for Christmas :)
