Yep, but as a user, good luck finding out the syntax you have
to provide for that - AFAIK its not documented in any of our
user facing docs. What everyone knows is the syntax accepted
by the -drive command, so I figure we should allow it everywhere.

I didn't even know about the ability to use json until Kevin
mentioned it to me last time I asked about this :-)
