GraphPlot vs. SpringEmbedding

I see that the new version of GraphPlot included with Mathematica 5.1 
contains much of the functionality of ShowGraph and SpringEmbedding 
from Combinatorica.  It also seems to be significantly faster than 
SpringEmbedding.  However, one thing which I cannot figure out is how 
to have GraphPlot only do a partial step of the spring-embedding 
calculation - something equivalent to Combinatorica's SpringEmbedding[ 
g, 1, 0.04].  Is this possible?

Many thanks,
