Personally I have a -current partition (slice) that I keep up to date,
and an 8-stable'ish slice that I purposely keep in a known-good state,
and only update if -current has been running good for a while (which it
has more often than not in the last several years).

I have both slices set up to share data such as /home, my cvs and svn
trees, etc. This has worked really well for me (and others, I originally
got the idea and some of my configuration from David Wolfskill) for over
a decade.
