relative merits of psuedo-rolling versus cyclic-rolling,

Ubuntu has gotten much better lately at providing updated software for their releases and I kind of like the idea of a rolling release until the next LTS arrives. I understand that this is only in the discussion stages right now but it would be nice if it became a reality. Canonical is going to update the kernel for the 12.04 LTS, this is a first for them and it suggests to me that a rolling release is possible.
This could also be good for distributions that are built from Ubuntu like Mint. Also, this could make upgrading from one release to another less problematic because everything would not be so out of date. At any rate, what are your thoughts on this?

I converted to Linux Mint main edition because it is rock-solid and reliable Now I think this rolling thing is a killjoy! I think I'll have to say goodbye to Linux forever
Ubuntu breaks constantly with updates

Neither Ubuntu nor Mint have broken with an update for years on my systems and I suck in every single update I can find. Anyway there is a simple rule with Linux - all versions - even debian stable:
disk/partition images = bye bye breakages
If you don't want to follow that rule you'll just have to live with the breakages you're so adept at finding.
