What happened to --desktop geom?

I'd like to apologize in advance if this is an old issue that everyone
already dealt with in some new mechanism...
But I compiled today's CVS for the first time in a few months, and when i
tried to fire up programs/games with --desktop geom 640x480 (or any other
dimensions) I get an "unknown option --desktop" error and the "usage" list
pops up. I read the man page, of course, and was able to see that no longer
do you pass windows command-line arguments in the form of "wine app.exe --
app.exe --somearg" (as you used to) but as "wine -- app.exe --somearg".
Unfortunately, I could find no mentions in the man, documentation, or on
the web about the missing --desktop wine option. In fact, it's still listed
in the Wine documentation on the site:
Below is the output I get when I attempt --desktop geom...
