[the weird prefix+suffix scheme.  best to think of it in advance as not
 being "personally owned" given that it's to be transferred to the OPF]

ok, right, yes, that's much clearer

honestly it doesn't matter what it is. i'm happy for the OPF to pick the

two digits represents a 25% reservation of the new space.  i did say that
we could potentially go to three (12.5% - only 8 new POs) but it starts
to get dicey at that point, especially given that:

* at least one of those new POs are likely to be for large bitmanip  
* 22 new POs (!!) are needed for a full suite of LD-ST-with-shift!
  (which has to be done *really* carefully - if at all - just
   sticking with add-with-shift might be better)
