As well as my end-user-facing network responsibilities, I also have corporate network responsibilities here. All of our corporate hub locations are multi-homed (or soon will be)... and I honestly can't remember the last time I made any changes (besides IOS upgrades) to BGP configs for the 2 hubs in the US. (We're moving physical locations in the "international" hubs and taking new providers, so I'm discounting those changes as you'd have similar changes in a single homed statically routed move).
If you don't have multihoming requirements other than availability then it really can be fire and forget.
