I am one of the few who does not care for furling but those that do have them often change out to a smaller head sail, quite often at the dock if they are going out in heavier air, so I would definitely have a 100%. A properly cut 135 should work reasonably well when furled slightly, guess you will just have to try it.
I have an S2 9.1, not the same boat but some similarities. I play the traveller all the time when sailing in gusty conditions which combined with a properly sized head sail keeps the boat "on her feet". I do not think the 9.2 is particularly tender.
