painkiller will become famous soon enough
I've never sailed a cutter, but I would think the following problems might occur:

* Headsail getting fouled on inner stay when tacking.
* More lines to make a mess in the cockpit
* That jib-boom would be a tripping hazard
* Not enough open foredeck space for a dinghy

Other than that, I would think that it's a pretty versatile and easily-managed sailplan.
