-1 for 2.7, as each introduction of new Unicode features has
historically been accompanied by a whole raft of new bugs, which are
mostly not reproducible (or at least hide) on the system where the
feature was developed.  We are trying hard to get to stability for 2.7,
with a beta planned for this week.

+1 for 2.7.1 and 2.8.
