Direct wire fuel pumps or not?

Bought an old 1979 930 and have discovered that the fuel pumps have been directly wired to run when the key is in ON position before start-up. It was a home made job and needs to be re-done/cleaned up. My question is: What overwhelming reason is there NOT to leave the pumps directly wired. The car runs fine so I do not see a reason to alter the set up - other than cleaning up the prior owner's sloppy job. Any thoughts?
