the problem with apt is indeed the difficulty with which you can hose your system (i.e. it's more anal about the consistency requirements). This cultural difference might make rpm based systems more useful for distributions that are still in development - they are by default somewhat hosed all the time, and what you usually want is "give me all the new stuff, no questions asked".
Ah, that might be the case. As an end user I really like consistency... But when it comes to fast developed distros I found Pacman in Frugalware to be rather good. (I think it is Arch package management system).
OpenSuse has stood up quite well to my mismanagement of adding and removing repos. I will keep on using it and try to be happy about the semiautomatic conflict management. :-)
