Default quadro 1000m with 2 external monitors

Hi,

I'm pretty sure the answer is "no", but I didn't find a definitive thread addressing it in the forum, but is there anyway to drive 2 external monitors with a ThinkPad W520 and Quadro 1000m?

I know Optimus is Windows-only at the moment/likely indefinitely, and I'm just grasping at straws, but I would be pretty tickled to have a ThinkPad (my current or next purchase) drive two externals.

Maybe nvidia could start a kickstarter project to fund Linux Optimus support... :-)

Thanks,
Stephen

With the docking station you can drive two DVI-monitors as long as you disable the internal display at the same time; Some guys at work run this setup.
