Upstream issues are a whole different kettle of fish, but obviously
still cause problems. Online game clients tend not to become stable
now simply because they can suddenly stop working when the server
software is upgraded, requiring a rapid upgrade to the client.
Maybe we need to rethink the definition of "stable" in these
situations. I think it still doesn't hurt to have some kind of QA
cycle internally for something like firefox. Plus at least with
firefox the old versions don't suddenly stop working/etc, assuming
they still get upstream security notices.
