What is it that you want to accomplish? If you want a light air sail with reaching capability that can sail reasonably deep then a code zero may be a good solution. If you want to run then a sail cut much deeper will be better; even so, you may have to reef or strike your main.
Regardless you are going to want a spinnaker halyard on an overriding block to avoid fouling your forestay and foresail.
There are a number of spinnaker and spinnaker-variant rigs with furling systems of one kind or another. The rigging differences on the boat side (top and bottom) between a conventional a-sym, an a-sym with a sock, and a furling a-sym are inconsequential.
If you can possibly afford the time, find someone who races with a chute and volunteer for foredeck. One season racing foredeck and you won't have to ask questions - you'll answer them!
sail fast and eat well, dave
beware "cut and paste" sailors.
