I figured that if a person has the UPS in their physical possession then
they know how many load segments it has.  The wider NUT framework isn't
going to make use of it anyway, is it?

The problem is the time...  You will note that it took me until today to
send this in - I made it work in April.  At which time someone told me a
more useful way to do a diff.  I'm sick today (but mostly recovered) which
helped me find the time.
