Just one data point (well two, as I have two openers), several years ago I
put a CF bulb in my garage door opener, as I didn't have a regular bulb.  I
expected it to fail quickly, but when it didn't, I replaced all of them (each
opener has two).  They have been going fine for at least five years.  They are
screw drive openers, so perhaps smoother than a chain drive, though based on
the noise they make (they are probably 20+ years old), the probably still
vibrate quite a bit.  Incandescent bulbs, even rough service, tended to last
less than a year.
