The people reading it as they deal with the package in gentoo may get
the implication, but people who see the text forwarded to some news
agency or forum, or lug list may not put 2 and 2 together, and instead
run off with ZOMG ALL ZE KERNELS ARE BAD!!!  This leads to tonnes of
people filing bugs against us or posting to our news groups or forums
asking why we're so irresponsible as to offer "2.6.27" kernels.

It's not like I haven't been to this rodeo a few times before (:
