How many lines to your cocpkpit?

I solo 90% of the time and have been planning to rig somethings differently on the boat this spring to allow better control from the cockpit. My Halyards and a jib downhaul are accessible already but am thinking of ways to alter the topping lift (tied off on boom!) and the downhaul for the boom (used like a cunningham) to come back near the helm. I guess the big one is the topping lift which given the substantial length of my boom is quite a pia when reefing in a sea(I currently have to head up and haul in the boom to get to it!)
Anyone out there re rigged to solve this problem?
TIA
