indeed.  for people who disagree, feel free to go through every single stable 
package in the tree that breaks with glibc-2.12, or linux-headers-2.6.35, or 
make-3.82, or xxx and add a blocker against the newer versions of these 
packages.  and then do it every time we get a new version.

or, let's keep our sanity and continue doing what we've been doing over the 
years -- stabilize newer versions of packages that do work with the stable & 
unstable versions of the packages they build against.

people who install unstable core system packages way before we're interested 
in stabilizing and then file bugs that only apply to stable get INVALID->their 
problem.  especially when a simple bugzilla search would have told them that 
their issue is already fixed in the unstable version of whatever package is 
failing for them.
