at the current time, that's the best solution.

It would be fairly trivial to allow a file of hosts to have notation like:
http://example.com/ /root1/ /root2/ /root3/

To specify multiple values to the -root option is do-able, but will
require a bit of extra looping/host population in %TARGETS.

Reminder: all the code, tickets, etc., available via SVN/Trac:
