This is true for simple beta dacays, but in cases such as Sr90 there is the extra issue of the decay chain, with Y90 decays following the first Sr90 beta emission. This adds some complication in a specific description of the Sr90 source in GPS or in a C++ class.
If the source is in equilibrium, one can model separately the 2 beta sources with GPS (GPS can model multiple parallel sources with different intensities). The disadvantage is that you are not able to reproduce the correct timing and correlation of the electrons (and corresponding Bremsstrahlung emissions) but maybe this is not relevant to your application.
Also, I would be careful in general in limiting the emission angle or redirecting the e-, because of the electron scattering: Sr isotopes are not held in vacuum, so not all e- leaving the source in the "right" direction will reach your sensitive volume, and not all the e- leaving in the "wrong" direction will miss it.
Because of all these issues, I personally tend to accept a (reasonable) CPU inefficiency to avoid introducing unexpected / unwanted / unknown biasing in the results.
