Is iOS 4.2 stable or mostly stable / will it run well on a 2nd gen iPod touch?

My brother would like to be able to get some more apps for his Touch, but most require a newer version of iOS. Unfortunately, there have been reports of iOS 4 making older Touches run like crap, especially affecting the battery life
. Also, manually upgrading to iOS 3 seems nigh on impossible.
8 GB and running iOS 2.2.1 currently, he thinks.
Side question: is it possible to restore it to the previous firmware if iOS 4 doesn't work out (maybe via imaging it first)?
