      Nope, can't do it. All I can do is negate the Power Attack Penalty in total. (Remember it's only one
      number, it's an all or nothing deal. In order to change that, I'd have to do some complicated
      mess... something I'm not feeling keen to attempt). I think we can wait for Freemarker and see what
      is possible with that. Once we have an idea of that, then I'll re-evaluate the request.
