Good point about all boats being different. However, using two separate lines, tied to the clue with bowlines is the only way I'd go. Maybe it is just 45+ years of habit. I don't leave my jib sheets tied to the sail. They get removed and stowed. It is quicker and easier to tie a bowline than use most shackles. It also gives more flexibility than using a single line and cow hitch.
