I was afraid you were going to ask that...!  The answer is an unqualified 
'No!'  The emphasis comes from the fact that, aside from Mandrake 9, every 
last distro I upgraded --read, SuSE 8.2, 9 Pro, 9.1, 9.2, Gentoo-- all were 
virtually unusable post-updating.  Lots of stuff broke and I finally gave up 
trying to fix what was not broken before I started doing the updates.  ...And 
that update process took place before I did any customizing.  Consequently, 
I'm loathe to break an otherwise-working distro.
