Let me repeat it: we don't break unstable on purpose.

Most of us use unstable. Do you really think it's on our best interest
to break it? It's just how things are. More than useful for users,
unstable is useful for what it is for: doing development. Don't try to
change that; this is not the problem, this is not the solution.

Maybe... we're trying to get our release process have a sane timing;
now, rehashing this kinds of non-issues doesn't help.
