eMMC connector durability.
Using my SOQuartz board with a eMMC module for last few weeks has been great performace-wise. However, every time I have to detach the module, flash new OS and reattach I wonder how long is that tiny plastic connector is going to last. I do kernel and driver development so when I use it I re-flash the OS few times per day.

So my question is. How many connect/disconnect cycles are these flat eMMC connectors usually rated for? Had people have them break already in normal use? Should I be doing something special to extend its lifetime (lubricating with plastic spray lubricant) etc?

Also, when they break, is it fairly easy to buy them? I can solder such components no problem, but buying them is another story.
