Hi Stuart,

Well I was using 0.10 in a production environment and we had issues  
with restoring files over a certain size - in our case this was a  
3.5GB SQL tar.gz file. I am now using Chris's branch on the client  
and server and has been solid as a rock and no other issues which  
impede its use have yet been found.

Therefore, I will let you draw you own conclusions - usually CVS head  
or subversion code is probably not wise on a production machine - but  
we had a specific issue which Chris fixed (thanks again) which  
otherwise would make the product unusable for us.
