Timing belt breakage

My understanding is that the 5 cylinder engines, such as the one in my 87 
5kCSTQ, are "non-interference" engines, so a timing belt break just leaves 
you dead by the side of the road.  However, the V-6 and V-8 engines are 
"interference" engines and when the belt breaks bad things can (and often 
do) happen.
