For my part, sure!  For a new cart, the PCB will be like $2, and I
haven't been able to find the great deals on pulled EPROMs that lots of
people have, so I pay something like $5 per ROM.  And then there's the
hassle and labor of printing a label and assembling the thing, so I
think $2 to not have to destroy yet another E.T. or Pac-Man is probably
worth it.
