Airlines from PVC

The ongoing controversy regarding PVC for shop air really interests me. I have used Sched 40 PVC for 10 years and never had a problem. My decision to use it is based on the rating printed on the side - 495 (maybe slightly less) PSI. I will use it again in my new garage. I've seen some posts regarding PVC bursting with scary consequences. I'm wondering if these folks used that thin wall PVC that the Irrigation contractors use or is there a real concern about using the Sched 40 PVC? If this sched 40 stuff is a problem, what does that say about the rating system?
What think??
