I think this is reasonable. I agree that this is something 
unprecedented, and security bugs are likely to always appear. However 
this is several security fixes and a buggy toolchain. Also a testing 
branch still hasn't been created, so who knows how long it will be until 
we have a new stable from current trunk?
