I was thinking I didn't need it until the system is live, and it may
or may not complicate things, and I have had to restart several times
already.

For example I believe it changes su, so if I need to uninstall it for
some reason, I will need to restore files it has changed.

I guess the question to ask what is the downside of deferring it?
