Genoa/Jib Sheets - one continuous or two?

I'm replacing my Genoa sheets and the current sheets are one continuous line slipped through it's own loop at the clew. I was going to put the replacement as separate strands tied with bowlines which is how I've typically done it.

Got to thinking, how do most of you choose to rig your genoa and/or jib sheets? Any strong proponents one way or another? One thing for sure is the single line sure doesn't want to losen at the clew to get it off! Bowlines at least can release easier with no load...
