    Experimental may just not work as advertised, or indeed at all, or perhaps
    oops harmlessly. Dangerous eats things for breakfast, mainly filesystems,
    I guess.

    So, the PPP packet filtering stuff I'm currently putting off finishing
    would be "experimental", whereas the NTFS write support is "dangerous"
    because I /know/ it *can* eat filesystems, before breakfast, without spoiling
    its appetite..
