CS36 Outhaul

I am replacing some worn sheaves and running rigging on my CS36T. I noticed that the original setup on this boat has a 4:1 block and tackle inside the boom for the outhaul. I'm thinking of just getting rid of the block and tackle and running straight line. All lines are led aft to cleats and winches. Any reason why I shouldn't get rid of the block and tackle? I feel like it just gets in the way, could potentially snag one of the reefing lines and is impossible to service. I should be able to get plenty of leverage with a winch, am I missing something?
