I concur. In particular, the process is already such that if we get
even near something that fits this description of "current", a big
party will be thrown and that something will be frozen to become the
next "stable" within a short timeframe.
Everybody seems to agree that new stable versions *should* be out
about every 6 months. The problem of getting testing into a freezeable
state is not going to go away simply by calling the goal "current"
instead of "stable".
