It's hard to compare VDR to kernels : VDR is maitained exclusively by
Klaus, so If there is a "stable" release, he would have to spent lots of
time in the stable branch before coming to the new devel branch again.

If you look at the VDR code quality, and stability of the compiled code,
I would say, we already have a stable branch in respect to usability :-)

No, I doubt there will be two branches at the same time...
