The packages I have available are already in production at a few sites,
so not that experimental. Also I want people to use them [1];)

Here is how I made the decision:

What exactly is wrong with the packages is that they temporarily require
a slightly modified SchoolTool module, which is included with the CanDo
packages. This will be fixed in the next SchoolTool and CanDo major

Probably not, but maybe, in fixing this we will break the upgrade path
or database compatibility or something else. Hence the bug.

I also noted that I did exactly the same with SchoolTool for about a
year with no adverse effects. The fuzzy logic risk/reward/xyz calculator
in my brain said unstable is the right place for these, but keep them
out of testing just in case.

Hope that helps;)
