Transcendental number is on a distinguished road
Speaking as someone who is just relearning things after a long absence I'd say early game finds lead to a more fun experience... for a while. But they don't contribute to long-term survivability because they make you soft.

I just got my first winner in this iteration of Angband and it was a grind all the way. I never felt comfortable (until right at the end). But that is why my paranoid Gnome Mage turned out a winner rather than a chicken dinner. Earlier attempts had died from overconfidence - usually related to some early great find.
