I guess we are going to change it to "stable" for 2.6.
Biggest question is if it becomes the new recommended way or
if we stick with the current "request.addfinalizer" as the first
thing a newcomer sees.

Hopefully before June but can't promise.  If you can help with fixing
bugs or issues, that accelerates it. FYI We usually do a 4-6 weekly bug day,
announced via https://mail.python.org/mailman/listinfo/pytest-dev .
