17 I will have to agree that this change has made it a pain to mark anything
18 stable. I had 4 out of the 6 I did today bail out because of this. I took the
19 simple easy fix and removed the check to stabalize the packages I needed to. I
20 know we have people who want modular X yesterday, but causing trouble for dev's
21 going about business that doesn't involve the modular problems directly is only
22 going to cause resentment and frustration to all the teams involved.
