Compost volunteer plants: Pull or keep?

There are some potato plants popping up out of my compost heap, growing from kitchen scraps. I have no plans to try to grow any potatoes, so are these plants A) robbing nutrients from my compost heap, and I should pull them out quickly, or B) taking in more energy/nutrients from the sun and the air, enriching my future compost, and I should let them grow? Or some combination of the two?
