You mix it up. Portage works with python 3.1. If an user switches to python
3.1 as the main interpreter, it's possible that his own scripts won't work.
Marking it stable sometine in november give's some time to ebuilds
maintainers to fix their python based apps just like it's done with gcc
So marking python 3.1 stable and telling users "port your own apps/scripts to
current python" sounds good to me.
