But my question stands: what really is the advantage of having a
stable tree, when you could better invest your time in keeping the
testing tree up to date and working? Most production systems are
running x86, right? Are stable versions of minority architecture
installations really that much more stable than testing versions?

PS: this is by no means a rhetorical question.
PPS: bonus points for the person who can tell me a good opposite of
"rhetorical".
