I've been running a salsa QR on my on-one horizontal dropouts. So far no problems, but I've ordered a on-one chain tug to be safe.

I've been using Bontrager QR on my Jabberwocky with pretty good success. Every once in a while I need to stop and adjust the rear wheel a little. Strangely enough the biggest problem seems to be when I have to suddenly jump hard on the rear brake and not chain torque. If I use good braking technique and just "feather" the rear brake when needed things usually stay put long enough to get in a 2 hour ride without stopping to make an adjustment.

.. but you have to use a pair of tuggers. A QR won't clamp tightly enough to keep from slipping on its own. Also, be prepared for some tweaking to get it dialed in just so.
Tons of people use QR with horizontal dropouts with no problem. You need a good solid QR, standard Shimano will work great. Just screw it down good and tight.

Agreed. Not a single problem with a Shimano QR on my Inbred either. Not really fiddly to set up either

We have QR trailer hitches (i.e. generic as can be) on 2 different horizontal dropout bikes. The caliper brake bike, just need to make sure it's really tight. The disc-brake bike, wound up putting a chain tug on the disc side. Could not tighten it enough to keep the wheel straight when braking.
