Eh? Something very odd is going on here then ... This is what I see:
I'm using 0.23 fixes too, compiled from source with /no/ modifications.
Although I last updated in July so I'm a few months ahead of you:

I don't know when those options were added but I could have sworn they
were in well before 0.23. Certainly I don't ever remember them /not/
being there since I've been using Myth nor do I remember doing anything
special to make them appear in the first place.
All I have ever done on all my frontends is to add "sudo" to the command
line and more recently changed "halt" to "pm-suspend" after I became
familiar with standby & hibernation in Linux.
The only code changes in this area that I remember was
http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/changeset/25433. This is for trunk so doesn't
apply here (and only removes the default values anyway - not the options
Maybe somebody else knows a reason why we are seeing different things ...
