SP 2010 - Managed Metadata Columns Not Supported in LINQ to SharePoint?

Today I am playing with LINQ to SharePoint. I created a simple list and added a Managed Metadata Column to my list. I then used SPMetal to generate a DataContext class. My Managed Metadata Column is nowhere to be found. I looked through options for SPMetal to see if maybe it just needed a switch to capture those Managed Metadata Columns, but I don't see one.

So it appears that Managed Metadata Columns have no support in LINQ to SharePoint. They are also not eligible to be Projected Fields. It would seem Microsoft didn't really flesh out all the ways the new Managed Metadata Service might be used.

Update: I figured out how to do this.
