I agree.  Over the years I've updated many production servers to
-stable, and of course periodically things break, I remember having
major difficulties when updates to the ahc driver caused regular panics
:)  On the otherhand the majority of changes to -stable are for
subsystems and rarely affect the stability of the entire machine.  For
my uses that was sufficient.
