Ah, wonderful idea!  I'm grabbing it now, and will try to find detailed
release notes to see if it has anything about this controller.

I know PPC linux releases could support command-click as right click, so I
can only assume CentOS 5 could as well.  (But I wouldn't know where to
start looking for this information beyond a naive google search.)

Already done--I installed Bootcamp and rEFIt almost as soon as I booted
the thing.  ;-)  At the time (about May-June or so) I tried three different
distro installers before googling and realizing that no kernel at the time
supported the MBP7,1.  (So I'm cautiously optimistic about the RHEL6
beta.)
