And they could also symlink libc.so.6 to libc.so.7, set PACKAGESITE to
specify packages-7-current and 'pkg_add -r'.  Many, many things will work
fine.  But that doesn't mean we guarentee it will work in all cases.
Folks are lucky where it works (using X-stable packages on X-release),
but its not something we can garentee unless we want -stable to be
-stale.
