Frank,

As you know, pointing ability is driven by sheeting angles and keel lift.  So with a #3 genoa and wing keel, you're giving up a lot.  Why not fall off and pick up boat speed probably better for VMG too.  The barber hauler most likely won't help you point higher but it will pull your leech down and you won't spill as much wind due to twist which is what you're most likely referring to as curve.  If you want to point as high as possible you'll have to use a headsail that can utilize the inner sail tracks like Craig mentioned.
