Does that get handed off properly?  I would have expected

Hm.  I would assume that would act identically to the previous one (with
the exception of setting the network parameters).

What way does "not seem to work" mean?  network problems?  verbose
problems?  install problems?

Again, what is the behavior?

* I would expect you'd need the -v to be interpreted by the kernel, so it
has to be before the lone dash.*
