where did you get the idea, that a moving target like gentoo is apropriate for 
a production box?

If you put gentoo onto such a box, it is your very own problem. If you want 
total stability and a lot of testing prior a patch goes out, maybe you should 
spent the bucks and buy SLES or RHEL
If something breaks with them, you have a right to whine.

Oh, and by the way: for me X is stable, secure and working - everybody has 
different needs.
