And documents pretty much never break. I just re-LaTeXed a document I wrote in 1994. It worked, and it looked the same as it did back then. (This will always be true for the underlying TeX layer, of course, because it's nearly maintenance-dead upstream with an author known as an utter paranoid for identical results no matter what. But even e-TeX produces nearly identical results for nearly all documents.)
