Range checking on config file

Unless I missed something, the code processing gonfig slots can't distinguish 
-1 from 0xffffffff or the equivalent decimal number.
They both come through as T_Integer.  There is no T_Unsigned

The checking code gets to pull it as either xx->val.i or xx->val.u
struct attr_val_tag {
        attr_val *      link;
        int             attr;
        int             type;   /* T_String, T_Integer, ... */
        union val {
                int             i;
                unsigned int    u;
                int_range       r;
                double          d;
                char *          s;
        } value;

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
