Not as annoying as I thought it would be, thanks to the game loading up pretty quickly.
Playing it via off-screen play while half listening to a tv show in the background helped with the tedium of hitting the home button, closing out the game, and reloading it each time. That trick cuts way down on the time needed to regain your powerups, especially the Tanooki suit (Which makes the disappearing platforms about halfway through this level, basically a non-event).
I never saw Tanooki suits too often, and the level I saw recommended to get a pair of them at is an easy one to die on (Something in World 5, I've forgotten the specific name of it). Not one I wanted to keep returning to all the time to mine powerups.
It's not like the cat suit where you can just play level 1-1 and breeze through it in 90 seconds or so while getting two cat suits, with basically zero threat of dying.
