Well, no, two of us have offered TR XX0 | XX0 as an alternate G#5, which allows using LH B4. Also, again, depending on the tempo (Jon has not yet named the piece of music involved) it's sometimes possible (and standard technique) to start with RH B and during the note's duration switch to LH B, leaving RH pinky free to open the Eb key.

These may well work, too, depending on how they tune.
