And now there's no place I can go for latest-and-greatest. Some
features in stable, other features in unstable - do I have to merge
locally if I need all of them?
If we have some new flex-calibre developments, they warrant their own
branch, as they are totally unusable whilst in the works.

The shining point of unstable is not that you can shove some flexy
stuff there. It's that you can tweak APIs without regard to backwards
compat, and have generally cleaner codebase.
