[mythtv-users] Missing --passthrough option in mythtranscode

I'm on 0.24.1, but my copy of mythtranscode doesn't seem to accept 
--passthrough or -P.  I can see some relevant looking changes that
went into the fixes/0.24 branch before the 0.24.1 tag. Also I can't
find any other relevant looking changes - oh - hang on - should
I be pulling from JRAs own repo? Is that where I'm going wrong?
Just occurred to me while posting this.

Other than this problem, I'm getting great result piping mythtranscode
into ffmpeg with libx264. I seem to be getting frame-accurate cutting
and perfect video quality, while maintaining the interlace so the
results are as smooth at the original. I'm just losing a little on
the audio because of downmixing to stereo.
