[postgis-users] shp2pgsql-gui and option -S (Generate simple instead of MULTI geometries) / Ticket #660?

Recent PostGIS versions come with a nifty plugin for pgAdmin3 called
"PostGIS Shapefile and DBF Loader" (shp2pgsql-gui). I see Revision
7713 in my case.
A common stumbling block of shp2pgsql is that Shapefile LineStrings
are imported as MulitLineStrings (I'd wish the default would be the
other way round :->)
Fortunately there's the option -S "Generate simple geometries instead
of MULTI geometries".
Now I realize that this option is not available in the "Options..."
dialog and that there is a ticket #660 since 4.4.11.
Am I missing something?
