it may make it easier to get onto the back wheel, but when you have to lift the rear wheel of the ground to go up something it can be more difficult with all the weight at the back, the cost may be around the same for a new build but for replaceing broken parts freewheels are cheaper

The only benefit is better weight distribution, and that in theory a freewheel can give stronger engagements, because there is room inside for more pawls. In a pro2 rear hub for example, there is only enough room for 4 pawls, whereas in a freewheel you can fit 6 or even 9 pawls.

I recently moved the freewheel on my stock from the back wheel to the cranks; can't say I noticed any difference ride wise. The chain will wear faster though because it's constantly in motion, but that's just being anal...
