eh ... etex was always tested pretty well before being published, and 
pdftex was never that unstable, actually, pdfetex (watch the e) is a pretty 
stable replacement of tex today; far more important: bugs in pdftex were 
fixed pretty fast and even more important: versins that went on tex live 
(or on sites) were really torture tested.

so, as a learning experience: how come that 1.23 ended up on public servers 
and in distributions; i think that future omega releases should have beta 
versions alongside less-beta versions

and, curious, what happened to version 1.16-1.22?
