Here's the official stance from CCK's mainainer. :-)

- CCK will be ready for 4.7's release. For some values of "ready."  
That is, I have been launching production sites using it for some  
time, and I feel that it's stable.
- It will probably be a couple months yet before all of Flexinode's  
features are implemented in CCK, so people who need those should stay  
with Flexinode.
- An upgrade path from Flexinode to CCK is critical. Owen is working  
on this.
- I am very very very happy that Bèr is stepping up and maintaining  
Flexinode as I throw my efforts elsewhere. The two can coexist very  
nicely during the 4.7 cycle.
