I also use a block on each side attached the the rail as far back as possible. However, it's important to note that the block (or blocks) midships for the guy will need to be either a release type (ie. so the guy can be removed without removing the block) or, the blocks themselves should be on an adjustable line. This is so that when gybing, the guy and sheet can be swapped.
My pole has an uphaul which is adjustable from the mast winch but I don't use a downhaul. I find that having the block for the guy a little further forward than normal prevents the pole from lifting anyway. This arrangement has always worked rather well.
