"stable" 2.1.xx?

I know what I'm asking for is something of a contradiction in terms,
but is there a fairly stable 2.1.xx kernel? I'm working on a set of
modifications to Linux that I'd like to make generally available if
they turn out to be useful. I've been working on 2.0.30, but there
are a few things in the 2.1.xx series that might make my life easier -
and if the mods end up useful, I figure they are more usable if they
can be applied to more recent kernels. Anyway, is there a revision
number that is more likely to be helpful due to the new features in
2.1 than harmful due to the increased instability?
