This is actually a great example why NOT to have it - red stone trickery was learnt from the ground up, shared around you tube and forums and now you have instructions and guides any where you care to look - yay community!
With enchanting, whilst we dont know what we are going to get, we have you tube and forums to show us how to gain XP very quickly - just look at Blacksox enderman grinder - We also have on our servers people willing to share their uber tools, so if you do come across diamond, there is already a pick you can use to maximise return (last night I found two deposits of 5 diamonds each - using the fortune 3 I got 21 diamonds from that)
Add to that Espeesh's point of trade, and I am more convinced that we should not get this mod.
Heck, I think Tribble got a silk touch diamond pick off me because I had no use for it - and thats an interesting point - we are a community, but the game mechanic teaches you to hoard.
Empty food bins and tool chests in the spawn area are a testament to that I think.
"I have more than I need right now - but later I may want it!"
If we all took the habit of dropping our excess stuff off at spawn, then you would hope that at spawn there would be excess stuff when you need it.
