I sometimes lead in blocks for free/day climbs. The leader is rested (instead of having just seconded) and can get into a groove. If hauling (or at least hauling a multi-day heavy pig), I wouldn't lead in blocks. If doing a big wall type route in a day (and not hauling or hauling a small pack), you could get a benefit. Even more so if the leader is willing to short fix/solo aid before the second makes it up.
