I would have to disagree with that.

Beta means that things work and are ready to be tested for bugs, which are
expected.

Alpha means that it runs, but may not work.

5.5 is Beta quality.  6.1 is Alpha.

I can't even use 6.1, as the "shadowing" bug on explicitVariables is far,
far worse than 5.5.  At least I can quit 5.5, maybe one time in ten have to
do a save with explicit variables off, load, and save, but I can't get it
unset in 6.1
