According to most people, almost always. (This is true of MPlayer
although not of many other projects.) I've only seen one person complain
about CVS-version instability with respect to MPlayer, and the problems
he's raised don't seem (from my hole-y memory) to be ones the average
user is likely to encounter much.

Warning: Simply because I argue an issue does not mean I agree with any
side of it.

Secrecy is the beginning of tyranny.
