At this point, I don't think there should be that much breakage in Etch. There certainly hasn't been for at least the past few months. Of course, it all depends upon the mix of software you use. But breaking "often and repeatedly" is a bit much for what most people can expect from Etch these days, given where it is in its development cycle.
