Well, 5.x is still the development branch. Last I saw they don't expect 5
to be the stable branch until 5.3. This means that if you decide to run 5.2
then you're running a risk.
So, if you want that chance of a performance boost (which there may or may
not be) then you run some risks. I'd advise ensuring you have a rollback
strategy in place incase it doesn't work for you.
