If the pump could measure my blood sugar and adjust accordingly, then it would be a real benefit.

Medtronic already has that feature. I'll be switching to that pump sometime this year.

I personally don't have scarring issues....or irritation at insertion sites.

Visit pumpers.org and see if you find people complaining about scarring. If it really worries you, change your insertion site every 24-48 hours.

The way in which insulin is delivered has little to do with the actual control (though the ability to change basil on the fly is damn cool). The quality of life a pump provides is light years ahead of multiple injections. I haven't touched a needle in two years......and if I have a choice, never will.
