I disagree.

Nobody can check all the new or old incompatibilities between TeX packages.
(Think about, when I update TL2009 to TL2011 there will be practically
a few tousand packages that have been changed? I will not check all
incompatibilities, neither now nor in future.)

If you are working on an important project, simply don't update the system,
or at least not the TeX system.

This kind of discussion is sooo common, and the outcome is always the same:
- don't change your TeX files during an important project, esp when the
  deadline is near
- regularly check your old files whether they still compile

If you don't want that, you have to make copies of all the files used in
your project and use local or project specific TEXMF trees.
