At what point should the 1.5.xx series be considered "usable" on Linux? 
I'm thinking usable as 1.4.xx is, not trying disconnected mode, at the

I've tried  Linux clients from 1.5.71-73 with varying amounts of
success, but in no case has it been sufficient.  A quick look at my
domain, and you'll see that I'm likely connecting to a stunning (or
annoying) variety of servers, which might explain my results.  In every
case, I've had "holes" in my data as viewed in /afs.  Though those holes
have gotten smaller with each release, some still appear to be there
with 1.5.73.  Is there something I can run that will furnish debug
information to be of some help?  A quick glance through "pts help" or
"fs help" doesn't really suggest anything to me.  I'm presuming I want
to identify missing data, and run something against the mount point or
against the server.  With 1.5.72 I found that the mount points
themselves were missing for some data.  I guess I also need to know how
to map a mount point to a server.  By the way, this stuff is both
same-cell and cross-cell.  For the testing I've done so far, any
cross-cell data is "system:anyuser rl" - I haven't gotten to getting
extra tokens.
