They are pretty usable. You'll encounter some bugs from time to time,
and probably some minor API flux, but nothing all that bad.

This is GLib/GTK only. Above that, things are still majorly in flux,
don't try to use them. (i.e. don't try to build libgnomeui, etc. for
use, though you might try to build it to hack on it.)

The unstable docs are a lot better than the stable docs.

There are zero files in common, there's no problem.

The Debian scripts won't work because they list the old files in the
old version, and the new version has different files. ;-)

If there were Debian packages of the new GLib/GTK, they would not
conflict with the old packages.
