To frog or not to frog... that is the question. [sorry, couldn't resist]
Depends totally on you. Can you live with the gaps? Can you tie the more dramatic gaps closed and get on with the work? Or-- do the gaps bother you so much, no matter what you do, that you wince every time you pick up the work? If the latter, then you should seriously consider hitting the frog pond.
That's been my criteria for many years.
