Sure if it is less stable... but is it ? I am using it, and I don't get any 
crashes from it, or broken things. I think I have ironed out all known

Yes on the other hand, no distribution goes to the trouble of using opengtl 
from mercurial. They usually upgrade when either Krita stops supporting older 
version, or when llvm is upgraded, but then they will get a released version. 
And anyway, I am going to fix the crash really soon :)

And on the other hand, it makes testing harder for us, the current development 
version of opengtl is going to be released before 2.4, meaning that we will 
have to make sure that krita 2.3 works with it.
