Tiller to mainsheet self-steering?

What do you think about tiller to mainsheet self-steering? I have an old Falcon set-up that has never been installed. Obviously, an auto pilot or vane steering would be more accurate. I am just looking for something to help me when single handed. Would it be robust enough to keep me on course while I go forward to lower a jib? Seems like a cool poor-man's wind vane, if it works.
