In this case, DRUPAL-4-7 is stable except to the point where it turns out a fix 
I checked in is broken (which it turns out today that one *was*). DRUPAL-4-7 
will by rule pretty much always be a little less stable than an actual release, 
since one can never be SURE that I didn't check in something that I missed a 
ramification of, especially in a project that has as many tendrils into other 
pieces as Views. That said, I'm not doing major development in that branch.

When I do the major development, it'll be in DRUPAL-5--2. I don't know that 
I'll do Views 2 for 4.7. That's a lot of work.
