Well, you don't need to upgrade or can upgrade selectively (not always
of course) until you have some time to fix stuff if it happens to break
something.

Patchage still works for me but it doesn't compile anymore. That's the
most common problem I face, gcc or some important lib or buildtool gets
updated and apps that were written with much older versions won't
compile anymore until someone writes a patch or upstream does something
about it. I tend to notify the maintainer or upstream if I happen to be
the maintainer.

Personally I upgrade very frequently and few stuff broke so far. I
haven't tried a long update cycle yet but I bet a number of people do
that as well, I'd ask on IRC, forums or mailinglists about their
experience. Afaik many have used gentoo before.

I don't know if/how a rollback/downgrade is possible on Arch Linux but
at least for packages that I built myself I keep the packages of one or
two versions back, case the new package doesn't work as expected.
