7.0 is relatively new, while 6.3 would be a more conservative choice of
release if you have a lot of binaries running on previous release
because there are less changes. However, I think it's good to use 7.0
as a development platform for future applications as there are a lot of
performance/stability/feature additions that will never be simply MFC'ed
because we try hard to maintain API/ABI stability for -STABLE branches.
