Only if I had some reason why being in the hospital would be advisable, but the real issues that would make homebirth at home inadvisable, are usually serious enough to make birth inadvisable in favor of section. But I am sure there are a few things that could make it safer to birth vaginally in a hospital that aren't cause for section. If I were going to vaginally birth a breech other than frank breech, I would want to do it in that "perfect" hospital scenario. So yes, if I were attempting footling breech, and I could do it vaginally without any interventions or hassles, and just have someone with oxygen and emergent supplies if needed, I would opt for that instead of automatic section.
