My opinion - yes, you should.
But I've encountered a more pernicious "hurdle". Suppose an
Activity launch fails (for instance, if a file happens to be
missing, or if the Activity experiences an incompatibility against
Rainbow). In current Joyride, the new launch feedback will keep
blinking until something times out -- this seems to take several
minutes (far too long for my patience). I have to go through hoops
to "escape" from that (unhelpful) new launch feedback.
I don't know what would be a decent solution, but leaving a kid (or
adult) staring at the new launch feedback for possibly minutes on
end seems icky.
