Default To tension or not to tension, that is the question?

Putting my kit together and thinking of omitting the tensioner. I see bikes with and without one.

Personally I'm looking for a simple look and I think they tend to make the bike look more clattered and also the more components the more chances of it loosening and getting into the spokes. Since I have a chain breaker and my frame has some room for adjusting the back rim I should be able to eliminate most of the slack in the chain.

Just looking for some opinions from the motorized bicycle gurus. Pros and cons.
McGyver could fix that with bubble gum.
