Personally, functions are always fun!
And useful. Even if you don't need to play with them later, there's no
loss, because the exercise is in and of itself a good one. Plus, I
think functions tend (though not always) force you to clean up your
code: As Alan has mentioned, there are a few places that you duplicate
code. The exercise of converting to functions will often point out the
fact that you have multiple code.
