    I imagine it'll cheat the plant out of 5% of its food supply, which is more than it ever needed anyway.

    Yep, it'll be trying to nick a bit of the pitcher's food. Nothing to worry about, but if it creates a web over the mouth, I'd remove the web. Tree frogs sometimes try the same tactic, but they're more likely to slip into the pitcher and become a meal for the plant.

    Hellz, the ONLY time to sweat is if the plant itself goes into a nasty funk of one kind or another. Otherwise, insect pests are the only other problem. the spider can help out with the insect pests, and have a place to stay at the same time. Don't be sorry, just do not be so worried. You have the best help ANYWHERE right here. We WILL take care of you!!!!!!!!
