Subject: [CR]spoke direction when relacing wheels

I am going to build a set of wheels on a used pair of hubs (thanks, Paul Raley). It is clear from small marks near the spoke holes which way the hubs were initially spoked. When relacing, does it make more sense to go the same way or the opposite? Same way will cover the marks, but might be weaker because the hole and flange have been pulled that way for years?
