I generally agree with your comments.  I haven't marked clisp stable 
because even I haven't had time to muck with it much.  This is very much 
a work in progress; "stable" gives, I think, much false hope.  In my 
experience, broken packages from the stable line are quite common (I 
lack examples currently) and do us no credit.

Further, I think it wise to consider OSX versions in keywording: things 
which work just fine for devs using Panther appear to break in Tiger, 
and vice-versa (again, no specific examples).  This is a separate issue, 
however I think it is something we all should remember before marking a 
package "stable".
