It WAS unstable and unmaintained around the time of the 5-release cycle. So much, in fact, that they removed the capability to build it into your kernel completely. At some point after that, it was picked up by one of the devs who decided to maintain it. I was using it early on in the version 5 days and had problems to say the least. Since then, I have been using the old scheduler and have been reluctant to try again. If PC-BSD is using it though, perhaps it's stable enough to use again?
