I'm against packaging unstable stuff. We would be packaging a moving target 
where everything breaks every day. Let's not.

There's a reason there are stable releases (of anything): there's (supposed to 
be) a (social) guarantee that the API doesn't change in incompatible ways.

If a library doesn't work in a stable release, upstream has to get it to work. 
Simple as that.
Otherwise it just shouldn't be packaged. People can still use cargo to install 
it so we aren't preventing anyone from using it.

That said, there could be a rustc-devel package (only for rustc). Other 
packages, people should be on their own.

Please, let's not make unstable stable by decree. If anything, upstream should 
just release more stuff as stable (if it's stable) :P
