CJ Brake line fitting repair or replace or?

Hmm, well I was replacing one of the front brake lines and wound up doing the usual rounding of the hard line fitting. Its pretty well rounded off but the threads are fine, so I'm thinking use it as is or cut and reflare. On the other hand, if I reflare I just might as well replace. I was thinking about just leaving it, since I'll probably round it off again the next go round. Suggestions, experiences.

1. If a job's worth doing it's worth doing it right.
2. If you don't have the proper tool for the job, buy it.
3. If you have the time and money to do the job wrong...
4. You've got the time and money to do it right another time.
5. Cut the line.
6. Put on a NEW fitting.
7. Reflair.
8. Use anti-sieze on the threads.
9. Buy a nice flair wrench.
10. Rethread and tighten.
