I would like to make a cut-out in the roof of my next project, a hole in the shape of a question mark (?)... Would photo-etch saw blades be ideal for this, or will they not be sturdy enough? If the saw blades won't work, what would you guys recommend that will take on compound curves without breaking?

In most hobby circles these are also known as jeweler's saws and they would ideal for what you want to do. Check Micro-Mark.
