Three Legged thing - Brian or smaller in carbon fiber. Absolutely minuscule thing.
This Three Legged Thing sounds like a really good choice ... will definitely pick it up (maybe during my Christmas Vacation) ... thanks for sharing ... after having read your post did a youtube search and found this short and sweet vid that pretty much explains everything about this awesome tripod

I would stick with a small tripod. I give another vote for the GorillaPod Focus. It is not as rigid as a carbon fibre tripod, but it is *much* more portable. Alternatively, just shoot hand-held.

An example, 3s shot on tripod using the 70-300mm:

and another, taken hand-held with a 100mm macro lens and 40d:
