>From my recollection, Lorenzo made a patch to save that option in the board
file, and it never got committed.  This is at least a year ago.  I think he
has his own tree local on his disk and it is in there.  It would be
wonderful if you could find the original patch and get it in sync with
current code.  Would need a way to search the mailing list, or maybe Lorenzo
has a better idea.
