Front Trans Seal

I will be putting my new engine in this weekend and was wondering if I should replace the front Transmission seal as long as the engine was out. It doesn't seam to be leaking. Is it difficult to change the front seal? The torque converter is still in the transmission.

I should not be hard, but in the past I never bothered. If you do replace it make sure to get the converter fully seated back in, it can be tricky.
