I think you have good feed back. I think we're all just a little
defensive today :)... it happens... 

regardless... Drupal's focus on head/beta versions is very technical.. 
No company will offer you support, or for the most part even access to
their beta code. 

The support for 4.6 is much better, and the code base is much more

This will happen if you work with the beta version of just about any
piece of software. I think there has been a lot of strain for people
trying to go into production on the shoulders of 4.7/HEAD pre-release
and beta..  

Drupal, the released versions, are really not all that unstable or
difficult to upgrade. The module updates even the formAPI changes are
pretty well documented and should be quick to follow for most drupal
module developers... 

Hacking core... well you've got moving target issues.
