mapping 1 custom lead field to 2 other fields



I need to map upon conversion a custom Lead field called "Department" to the Department field in the created Opportunity record AND the created Contact record.  The problem I see is I can currently only map a Lead fiel dto ONE other object field (this seems like something Salesforce needs to improve).  I basically have to choose if I want my Lead Department field to map to either the Opportunity Department field, or to hte Contact Department field, but I can't do it to both.


Anyone know how I can map one custom Lead field called "Department", upon conversion, to BOTH the converted Opp record  "Department" field AND to the Contact "Department" field?
