I can't see how to distinguish "stable" from "unstable" (or to view
just the "unstable" category.

Take http://buildbot.python.org/all/waterfall?category=3.x.stable&category=3.x.unstable and remove the category GET argument that you  don't want to see, e.g. to only see unstable buildbots use http://buildbot.python.org/all/waterfall?category=3.x.unstable
What do those two categories have to do
with "supported" and "unsupported"?

Antoine can give the definitive answer, but I view stable buildbots as staying up and testing critical platforms. I.e. when I submit a patch I make sure the stable buildbots are always green (unless it's a transient failure) and I don't worry about the unstable ones (I view them as more informative than necessary). Basically red stable buildbot should block a release.
