I've been running 5.x on a production server for quite a few months now.
The main reason is that I'm the main Unix guy at my job, and if I get hit by
a bus it'll be far easier for my coworkers to upgrade from 5.2.something to
5-STABLE when it comes out than from 4-STABLE to 5-STABLE.

I've had no problems whatsoever in a live environment.
