That's a tough one... you'd definitely need twin runners to run such a sail on that rig. I'd wonder about excessive weather helm too, as a result of moving the center of effort aft with the extra roach in the main. That rig has in-line spreaders, IIRC, so you couldn't afford to forget a runner on a gibe or a tack.
Probably not a practical thing to do, but fun to consider isn't it?
