Recoil lug...to pin or not to pin? That is the question.

If one has no intentions of doing a switch barrel rifle is there any significant advantage to having the recoil lug (such as a Holland) pinned to the action when the barrel is installed? I'm not talking a benchrest rifle, just a 600 yard hunting rifle. I know it isn't terribly expensive and there are many things that can enhance accuracy that aren't too expensive by themselves. They do tend to add up though!
Thanks in advance.

    FWIW every gun that leaves my shop has a pinned lug. I can't stand those tools that use the guard screw.

    I say spend the money.
