Current branch of pkgsrc is just as stable as quarterly.  Stability issue is 
packages.  Other package managers/frameworks such as FreeBSD ports, portage 
(Gentoo Linux) and Arch Linux (pacman and the Arch Build System) are all kept
current.  But the newer modular-xorg is highly experimental on NetBSD pkgsrc 
and FreeBSD ports; I believe is better on Linux.

I wanted to upgrade xorg-modular installation on USB sticks (NetBSD) with 
pkgsrc tree and work directories on hard drive (FreeBSD UFS2/ffsv2 partition), 
but now I see maybe I shouldn't rush into it.
