Using a net at the reling...

I am making up the boat for departure a longer cruise and I thought of installing a net covering the reling, in protection of falling stuff or crew/me overboard. I have installed a rope covering harnishing, but I thought it could be a good idea and I have already seen some at Cruiser boats.
Does anyone of you have experience of something similar/equal and what would you suggest. Does a net like this complicate live on board or not? Does it actually help in some way?

Tks for your helpful answer and comments....

If it keeps you onboard just once, it might be worth it. Read the thread "Have you been saved?" to find out about people who've gone overboard between the lifelines.

Our boat is netted allround. Buckets, cans, sails, etc. tend to stay within. Stupid perhaps, but it makes me feel safer too.
