Well, it certainly wouldn't have been a happy development for the Federals.  One must keep in mind, though, that the entire Sixth Corps was sitting idly just behind the Round Tops, having recently arrived after a 30+ mile march.  They were tired, but would have been an unwelcome surprise to any Confederates attempting to flank the Union position.
