Default How long until the Rc's Start emerging?

I have had the nexus a good couple of months, and still haven't rooted due to the fact that after what seems a lifetime with a desire HD, until release candidates pop up, there's always something that needs flashing, or random reboots.

I've never owned a new android practically from the release date, so, I guess the question in short is, how long until Roms turn up that are as stable, If not more than stock. Something I can just flash and never worry about again?
