Occasionally they might lightly break during an update and need a little help from a binary package to get going again but overall very successful.
The only reason for a re-install I've found so far is an arch change (x86 -> amd64). The compilathons can be a bit of a pain but a handy core i7 box or two to act as a compiler farm for the less capable systems and careful use of distcc and binary packages makes that less of an annoyance.
