It worries me though that 5.1 went through a large number of alpha
releases, then a set of beta releases before the GA release came out.
It looks like they've thrown 5.4 straight out without anyone even being

Hell, 6.0 is on its tenth release and it's still in alpha.
Like you say, it'd be interesting to see which blackhole 5.2 and 5.3
