AF Confirm - is this as essential on an SLR as some suggest?

I have read around on whether to get an AF confirm adapter for M42-EF lenses (I imagine arguments are similar for others). I will be using an EF DSLR and an EF film SLR, and not using live mode. Are people exaggerating the inability to focus through the viewfinder? I have other EF-native manual lenses and don't have any problems with this. Is there some crucial aspect to non-native mounts that make it crucial, or is this just people being unable or unwilling to live without a little beep or light to quell their insecurities?
