Can't call out to dovecot --exec-mail imap w/ new dovecot

Up to now, I've had the following in .offlineimap:

[Repository Dovecot]
type = IMAP
preauthtunnel = /usr/sbin/dovecot --exec-mail imap

But with the latest Ubuntu, dovecot has no such option.  How can I make
offlineimap call out to dovecot now?  I've read documentation and
googled to no avail so far.
