Does it leak?
I would want the hole to be perfectly round, but the most important thing is...
Is the tone hole level?
Drop a leak light in there and find out if it leaks, take the key off and put a small piece of sheet glass on the tone hole to see if it is level. If not, take it to an expert, I've seen so many tone holes filed down way too far by well meaning butchers. Once the metal is gone, it's gone for good. You can't put it back. This will definitely affect intonation.
Good luck.
