Strange place for a cotter pin

I was getting ready to attempt to stab my transmission to the clutch this 
afternoon and I noticed at the bottom of my bellhousing right at the front 
is a small hole. I assume this is for drainage. There is a cotter pin in this 
hole and it seems to serve no useful purpose. Could be to keep the hole from 
getting clogged up. Doesn't look like typical British Leyland engineering but 
then who I to question them!!!! Should I leave it or pull it out? Also am 
having a devil of a time trying to stab the transmission by myself. Any 
thoughts on doing this job alone. If I can't get it done tonight I will call my 
son who benchpresses 275 and enlist his help tomorrow. My wife has no spirit 
of adventure in this regard and clams her manicure takes precedence over my 
LBC. Thanks Dave Matthews
