Steel distributor gear reality

Has anyone actually/really/truly wiped out an engine by not changing the distributor gear when installing a retro fit roller billet cam? We all like to say how you gotta due this, but is REALLY necessary? The stock gear is steel, too, I believe.

I'm not asking for a lecture about how it's only another $100 or "why take a chance" etc. Has anyone driven a car without changing the gear long enough to determine the life expectancy? If so, what failed?

Real life experience need only apply.
