God, please let my PVC-to-ABS issue be minor.

ABS, PVC, a six-inch drain and me -- am I as frakked as it appears I am?

I've got a project that I'm working on that requires a 6" drain pipe, which is four feet deep in the ground (at or below the frost point). I've got ABS (black) pipe running for virtually all of it, but because of a local-hardware-store-Sunday-closure/desperation to finish, I've got PVC-DWV joints in several places, glued with ABS glue, to said ABS pipes. Hindsight being 20/20 (since the Menards piping guy said it was "fine" to use PVC/ABS interchangeably for drain pipe), am I in serious trouble with my non-abs-pvc-transition-cement gluing as I (potentially) think I might be? Do I REALLY have to dig it all up, and redo my joints?
