So how long does a typical CF card last when used in such a way?  I'm
expecting my cheap Kingston to die in the near future (but I might be
wrong) and I'm wondering whether it's worth spending the extra money
on an industrial grade CF card.

I've had a Dane-Elec CF card die in a WRAP board, and I've since been
using microdrives instead of flash.  But of course, the Jornada 720
doesn't take microdrives.
