Manual focus on zoom buttons, A540

Hi,
I have been trying out CHDK a little bit on my A540 camera, and so far it seems to work great. But there is one thing. The menu item "Use zoom buttons for MF" in Main Menu>Miscellaneous Stuff is missing. Therefore I can not use this feature. Is it because this is not possible on my camera, or is there something wrong?

I think it's not implemented, since this camera already has MF.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Well, I thought (and hoped) that the point was to move the focus control from the awkward left/right buttons to the more convenient zoom control. Must have misunderstood, then, but the manual (page 42, bottom) says quite clearly: "For a more precise adjustment of manual focus". As far as I understand it this means a more precise adjustment than the one which is already there. Because that is more or less useless.
