What is "quite unreliable"?  Do you mean the NetBSD-current base system, or do you mean the ABI that might not hold still, thereby breaking packages following a base-system upgrade?

I need to upgrade my NetBSD 8.99.51 system, lean toward current rather than releng 9.

In my situation, I will have to rebuild/reinstall all or nearly all packages, even more so if I switch from modular Xorg to native Xorg.

There is also the problem of transition from Python 2.7 to 3.x, which has been posing complications not limited to NetBSD.
