Hmm, sounds a bit C-locale-centric, but I have no objection to inserting
an underscore there if it seems helpful.

What I thought would be worth discussing is whether to continue using the
"_STABLE" suffix.  It seems rather like a noise word for our purposes.
OTOH, dropping it might be a headache for scripts that deal with branch
names --- any thoughts?
