There are several people running the code in semi-production environments,
so it's pretty stable. There are still some stability issues, even with
non-threaded apps, but they're known, being worked on, etc.
some of the biggest issues are ABI concerns.. it would be nice to
have just one semi-flag day, not 4 or 5 real ones.
