The Arch guys tend to say (somewhere, I guess it is in the wiki) that you should be wary of what you install and upgrade as it is a rolling release distro.

They do check, but sometimes things get missed and it is the responsibility of the user to make sure stuff works on their system (and downgrade if it doesn't)
