'Which bugs haven't you found yet' is seldom an easy question for 
developers to answer.

Presumably few bugs are know which is why it's an RC, but it hasn't been 
tested much which is why it shouldn't be regarded as a stable release.

It very probably will be fine for many business applications, but 
without more testing I guess developers know it would be unwise to 
encourage you to depend on it for anything that would take a long tome 
to do again in or whatever.

My gut feeling for what it's worth, is that I might used it for two 
sided flyers for friends of the family, but I wouldn't yet use it for 
serious technical documentation with money, deadlines and reputation on 
the line.
