Some users have had success with upgrading or with the sixth sense option, but that seems to be some kind of "oh hey look it actually worked" thing.
I came to Sabayon because of a forum post you made on linuxquestions. I still keep it on a separate partition, but have moved to Arch Linux 64-bit as my main OS for the reasons you described : wanting to not have to fresh install constantly. Arch is a true "rolling release" distro, I've been running it for a while now on my HP dv6000 laptop ( AMD Turion 64 dual-core with a Broadcom wireless card ) and it's been stable, faster to boot and to shut down, and it has both binary and source distribution built-in. Can't recommend it enough, if you want a "install once, then just update as you go" experience.
Sabayon is a great achievement : desktop Gentoo all ready to go. But updating/upgrading without just doing a fresh install is such a pain.
