I'm pretty new, but my 1980 Hunter 25 has the traveler (pulleys) in front of the companionway. I think it's a huge pain. It means no one can sit next to me unless they commit to handling the traveler and it means always having to move it to get into my storage areas and cabin. I've asked before moving that control aft and now I'm more committed than ever to doing it. My boat does have a boom vang so I'm pretty convinced that the mainsheet and traveler will operate more conveniently aft.
