easy way to change headsails?

The motion of the boat is much easier if you keep her moving under reduced sail while you work on the foredeck. I would bear off the wind, luff the jib and ease the mainsheet, set the tiller tamer to steer the boat on a course forward of a beam reach, and let the boat continue sailing slowly on the main while I change the jib. (Using the tiller tamer is dicey. It''s much easier if you have crew or an electronic self-steerer to steer the boat.)
