I think, "we" (well, you probably noticed my slow step out....) should
slowly converge to have latest upstream releases in unstable ASAP. As
Andrew pointed, 4.1 is a full production release so there is indeed no
real reason to consider it less rock solid than 4.0.

Now that most problems have been cleaned out in 4.0 by you guys, 4.1
should be in unstable. I don't think it's even worth going through the
experimental route.

But that's more your call: you managed the 4.0 transition in a nearly
perfect way so I won't teach you lessons...;-)
