    Default more to the purpose

    Hola. ¿Cómo se traduce "more to the purpose" en el texto siguiente?:
    "I wonder what may be his opinion on the subject of ghosts," I thought, as I sprang out of bed, and flinging open the window, looked forth over the country bathed in the morning glory of glittering dew and molten gold.
    Perhaps it might have been more to the purpose had I marvelled what my own opinion was on the same matter; but I shrank from a strict mental examination at the time.
    Gracias por vuestra ayuda.

    I believe "más útil" reflects the idea of "more convenient or useful".
