Sorry for jumping into thread, but can we avoid negatives into naming which
accept values? If is always tricky to get expected effect when both are combined.

If value doesn't really mater than can it be just "noamu"?

If value does matter can it be (per Suzuki) amu=[0/1/on/off/y/n]?

Or can you postpone introduction of "just in case" option till that case happens?
