Turns out I need a lot more bits so ...

I grafted on a second mechanism that sends pluto a pair of integers
interpreted as WHAT:HOW (for instance, --impair ke-payload:omit) so
the lset_t limitation is removed. Old code can continue to use the
PS: I'm tempted to make the HOW a float so 'times' can also be sent
over, later ...
