Wouldn't it be nice if all the users out there who don't read
current-users had some way of knowing what parts of the kernel are stable,
and what parts aren't?  I certainly don't begrudge the fact that we have
unstable pieces of code in the kernel; that's how we get new features.
However, there should be some place that we can make notes along the lines
of, "This is still experimental."  There used to be a lot of those in
the (i386) kernel config files for GENERIC, etc.  Why were those removed,
if the options referred to by those comments are still unstable?  An
example would be lfs, which I believe is still unstable, but which no
longer has the comment after it.
