I think it might be a mistake to think of using a pick as a 'cop out'. You end up by closing off an area of experimentation that might lead to good things.
I don't personally use a pick but not because I think there's anything wrong with it. It's mainly because I not good enough with my fingers yet and I'm more interested in learning slap and pop at the moment. I will keep the idea of a pick handy, though, for the future.
Personally I'd use a drumstick or a violin bow if I felt it would give me the sound I was after.
Main thing is use the pick if it gives you what you want.
