st: Starting values in -mi impute mlogit-

I am running multiple imputation (-mi impute mlogit-) where I have
occasion to re-run an imputation on data that is very little changed. To
save time I have tried to save the estimates and feed them to the second
invocation as starting values. The help suggests (not very explicitly)
that this should be possible: under -help mi impute mlogit- the
-maximize_options- header points to -help mi mlogit- which says the
-from()- option can be used. While this is correct for plain -mlogit-,
-mi impute mlogit- complains:

> . mi impute mlogit state i.last i.next, add(1) augment force from(b, skip)
> option from() not allowed

So, is there a way to pass starting values to -mi impute mlogit-?
