It depends. The current ma10pre2 is a bugfix edition over ma9, so it
should be as solid as ma9, with some bugs removed (Ralf Wildenhues and
his lclint/splint skills are a big help here at the moment) -- it's
always good to kill some bugs, then release and only then start to
experiment, so people have a good version to come back to when the
experimental versions fail.

Other ma*pre versions however may have received major internal revisions
and can be less stable, but I usually announce when subsystems change
and should be watched closely because I suspect they might fail.

For example, the *pre versions shortly after the switch to automake
suffered from build troubles on some systems (but I think these oddities
are ironed out now.)
