[arch-releng] aif options

I was trying to use the latest archiso 2012.02.29_04-00-01 and I am 
confused about the options of aif.

I tried to start an installation with:
aif -p automatic -c my_profile -d -l

But it replied:
ERROR: $5 is set to PROCEDURE ? We don't use $5, maybe you still need to 
update your code to the new api (all debug categories in $4)

Apparently I should do "export DEBUG=1" before starting aif. But I still 
have to use the "-l" option to log to a file, which is not very 
consistent. However, the "-d" option still exists in the code of aif.sh.

Should I use "-l" and "export DEBUG=1", is it the expected way to do it? 
Could you make that more consistent (option or export)?
