How to do a loft in the API with the keep tangent edges option?

I do a lot of lofts through the API, but I just realised that while lofting between two profiles with curves and straight lines, the loft actually loses the straight line and introduces a very very slight curve to it when lofting. 

 

Looking at the UI, if I select the option to Keep Tangent Edges instead of Merge Tangent Edges I get what I want. I can't find a similar option in the API. Can someone tell me what I need to do to replicate this option please?

Unfortunately, that setting is not currently exposed by the API.  That and the "Closed" option were added to the command after the initial exposure of the Loft functionality in the API and the API has not been updated to support them.

Thanks for the speedy reply. That's a shame, although I've worked out I can do a number of lofts of smaller sections and combine, to hopefully get the same effect.

It would be great if this could be added as a feature request and at some-point in the future have the API expose the option.
