I'm working on a small circuit board and trying to conserve space. The board will have a component on top, and board to board pins on bottom. Instead of using up space on via's I was thinking I could just solder the component on bottom and on top where the traces will be. This shouldn't be a problem, practically, as the leads are very long and will be holding the component high off the board. I would have no problem getting the solder on that side. But I was wondering if this is considered bad practice for any reason.
