Halyards to cockpit?

How important is it?

Going to be single-handing mostly, on a 27 foot with 150+/- sf main and jibs between 150 and 275 +/- sf. Novice to bigger boats; but quite a few miles under the dink keel

In process of selecting running rigging and yesterday pulled the old off the boat for measurement. I wouldn't mind the extra cost of line; but the deck hardware to rig halyards to the 'pit is outrageous!.

Is it *so* important to be able to drop/haul sails from the cockpit; or am I making too much of it?
