Hmmmm... I haven't run into that situation (yet). My chain is right up against the stay too and even wears a little paint off there. Fortunately I've not had to resort to a half link myself.

I'm surprised you can't simply adjust the wheel enough. On my Magnas I did have to remove the "insert" in the right side dropout and put a bolt through the derailleur to allow more rear movement of the axle.
