Yeah, that should work. You could check first if the extraoptions are
specified at all to avoid possible undefined warnings, but that's just
fine tuning.

The probes should really inherit uniform command argument construction
from a separate module so the extraopts wouldn't have to be coded
separately into each one.  That's been on my todo list for ages, but I
never got round to it.
