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.
