Is it safe to use the Tor 0.2.3 Alpha in redistributed projects for regular use? (Such as Tails or TorBOX.) Or should the alpha branch only be touched by testers and developers?

Tor Stable is already labeled as "experimental software" and "do not rely on it for strong anonymity". How much worse does it get when using the Tor Alpha? What does Alpha with "more bugs than usual" mean? Does it mean there are just more minor annoyances or real concern for anonymity? Is the Alpha actually a Beta?

Is the added security of Tor 0.2.3 Alpha, with stream isolation feature, worth the "more bugs than usual" or do you really recommend against it?

It doesn't look like #3449 will be closed anytime soon. (No criticism. We are just asking, because we consider distributing Tor 0.2.3 Alpha with TorBOX and depend on your answer.)
