Thats good, and I preferr that, but if you look at the uname or dmesg of a
4-stable machine (before it switches to pre-release) it will say 4.7-Stable,
and after 4.8 release it will say 4.8-Stable. I don't like it that way
because of the confusion it creates, but tis the way it is. I guess it does
let you know where in between releases the -stable code was taken from.

As noted above, that's incorrect. RELENG_4_7 is the Release branch. It
doesn't have a name other than that. It's better to just call it

Yeah, sorry I didn't have any input on that issue.
