I don't think that's what Andreas is asking about.  He's not asking about being
able to define alternative "prefix arg"-like things (to be used separately).  I
think he wants the same user input to somehow distinguish two different things

At least that's my understanding.  IMO, he is simply confused, and defining
alternative prefix-arg-like things won't help him here.

Put differently, having the user use different prefix-arg-like things is similar
to having the user use a positive vs negative prefix arg.  And that's apparently
not what he wants.

He seems to want the user to use the _same_ behavior (no key difference) to
somehow get two different command behaviors.  Again, that's my guess about what
he's asking.
