I've never owned a new android practically from the release date, so, I guess the question in short is, how long until Roms turn up that are as stable, If not more than stock. Something I can just flash and never worry about again?

Hi, I come from HTC devices too. I can certify that I got shocked when I flashed the first Rom on the nexus 5 And it was as stable as the most stable Rom on Htc one S and previous phones. That just less than 1 month after N5 was released.
The advantage here is that devs have 1st class sources where on Htc they have to work harder and migrate to another phone. Or most are just ports from cousin phones. I admire from those developers the fact that without much help from HTC, they do hardly to port everything on those phones. However, there is were trouble begins: random bootloops, camera wont record, battey dies fast...etc. Not the case on nexus 5.
