Depends on how you run current. I never recompile anything, always a clean fresh install from the snapshot binary filesets and packages.

Saves a lot of wear and tear on your disk, saves electricity and thus is good for the environment. I wonder if I could make some money by selling my unused carbon emission rights

I have two disks in my sytem. I use both disks to install OpenBSD snapshots.
If I want to try a new snapshot, I do a fresh install on the oldest snapshot disk. That way I always have a working snapshot on the other disk to fall back on.

If you are careful you could follow a similar procedure by using two OpenBSD MBR partitions on a single disk. But as disks are cheap, I don't bother anymore.
You don't need to be a genius to debug a pf.conf firewall ruleset, you just need the guts to run tcpdump
