What does the passing of Kim Jong-il mean for regional stability?

The passing of Kim Jong-il marks the demise of one of the world's most ruthless dictators.  Though some world leaders might see this as a moment to celebrate, others are more worried that Jong-il's death could provoke regional instability.  Indeed, little is known about Kim Jong-il's designated successor, his young son Kim Jong Un.
