Only the large GM car here (2008+ Commodore) has the unlock twice feature as far as I'm aware.

My '04 MSM and the SP23 are unlock all doors with one "click" on the unlock, but the trunk release on the key fob for the '04 MSM kicks ass in my opinion!

Hmm, interesting. What exactly about the fob's trunk release makes you say it 'kicks ass?' I guess the one thing that's maybe a tad unique - That 'CLUNK' when you hit the release it pretty daggone loud. So if you're far away, it helps to locate your car. The range seems fairly decent too. Other than that, it seems pretty ordinary.
Many other cars have even nicer set ups - My Infiniti I30 opens up about halfway when you hit the button. A big help when you're struggling to hold a pair of dead midget hookers you need to stash in the trunk quickly.

I agree that click twice to unlock is kinda stupid for the miata.. except for that fact that many MSMs have a bad door lock/unlock actuator (or motor, or whatever the thing that locks the door is called). For example, my door rarely locks when I pres 'lock' so I got used to manually locking my door as I exit my MSM. If I press twice on my fob and unlock both doors, I tend to forget to close the passenger door because I have gotten used to never locking my door with the fob. So essentially, the fact that only the drivers door opens with single press on the fob is good because mazda made such crappy locking mechanism for the MSM.

Two things that I can say are good with the trunk release button on the MSM. 1) It actually exists and works. My dad's 2001 Accord has the button, but you had to pay extra at the dealership to enable it. So my dad opted against it. 2) You press the button and the trunk will open. On my old nissan, you have to press and hold for a bit before the trunk will open.
Now for useless features on the fobs.. what about the feature on my old nissan, if you press and hold the unlock button, the windows will roll down. If you do that accidentally, you'll have to go back to the car and manually put them back up, lol.

Personally I'll always go with two regular sized dead hookers...the problem with that approach, two hours later you're looking for more...before you know it you have four midget hookers in your trunk.  That's gonna throw off the handling.  At the least you better go with a beefier rear sway bar and dial as much negative camber as you're going to need it!
