Not necessarily.  Abritrarily marking a particular point in time as 
"stable" is probably not effective.  I think the other proposals in the 
thread about branching out the release line and applying critical 
patches to it would give a stable branch without the risk of the stable 
tag applying to something not really stable.  As it stands, mythtv CVS 
is very stable a great percentange of the time.  I run CVS all the time 
in my house and have really no issues with it related to comitted 
patches.  Then again, I watch the commit list, keep up on the dev 
discussion, and know when something got checked in that is likely to 
break things.
