I was thinking about complaining that "scariest" and "most bugs" are
not the same thing.  Features you can turn off are not very scary,
even if they're full of bugs (cough ... parallel query ... cough),
because we could just ship 'em disabled by default until there's more
reason to trust them.  What I find scary is patches that can break
existing use-cases with no simple workaround.  I'm not sure which one
to vote for yet.
