Looking for kickstand for Downtube FS (rear suspension)?

I am still on the hunt for a kickstand that will work on the rear suspended Downtube FS model.
Since there are no standard chain stays there is no place to put a standard kickstand.
Anyone else find something yet? Similarly I have no place to attach my trailer.

Have you looked at dropout mounted stands using something like This . Probably some customization would need doing to fit, or something similar fabricated.

You might also consider attaching a trailer to the seatpost.
