Yes, I'm afraid so. I'd recommend wiring it to a single unsigned
integer. For this case 0 meaning "on" and UINT_MAX meaning "off" makes
sense; for other uses (limit rather than threshold), the other way
around would make more sense. I think it's reasonable to add new var_*
items for this; that should be pretty easy. Maybe var_threshold.
