Re: rope & wire halyards vs all rope halyards
I would go with all rope as well. Modern lines are stronger, lighter, and have less stretch than wire. Right now my favorite for price vs performance is tapered dyneema/spectra lines, with the core just where the line hits the clutch and winch.
If done right, the prices should run about the same as low tech line, but with much greater performance.
