Our alpha's vary in reliability and quality. A newly branched
-alpha is likely to be very buggy and unstable. A longer lived -alpha
branch is probably just a reliable from a software perspective as
-stable, but may contain new features that can improve or degrade your
user experience. The whole point of the -alpha branch is to test out
Specifically, 0.2.2.x-alpha is likely to become the next -stable branch
soon. 0.2.2.x releases have been stable and quicker as a client over
the past few releases.
