Looks like it's a documentation issue to me.  this option is present in
2.1.9-2.  There are other bugs with the 2.0.x documentation, i think,
where features from the 2.1.x branch slipped into the 2.0 docs.

We're in the process of moving off of the 2.0.x branch to the 2.1.x
branch in unstable, and this is a minor documentation bug, so it's
unlikely to be fixed in the jessie (stable) release.

sorry about this,
