Another "no" for use production from me.

In addition to good reasons others have mentioned, Hardy is an LTS
release, so there might still be significant changes to handle Long
Term Support and insure the smooth, direct upgrade path from Dapper
(the last LTS) to Hardy that a release like Gutsy didn't need
consideration for.
