Samba 2.0.5a and smbmount password

The new smbmount that comes with Samba 2.0.5a doesn't seem to recognize
the '-P' command line option.
This means that I cannot automatically mount shares from a script, as I
need to manually enter the password for each mount.

This used to work with the older smbmount, and also with the newer
'smbmount -c ...'.
Is this (passing a password on the command line) not supported any more,
or am I missing something here?
