Which does not change the fact that the snapshots have been quite
better and more solid than the "stable" version for years now.  In
particular now that snapshots are released as "pretest" releases.

Can you point to any area, even a single one, where the supposed
"stability" of Emacs 21.4 leads to better results than, say, the
pretest 22.0.99?
