this mechanism helps if there are multiple OPs to select from.  for
other uses, like starting a tran with charged caps, ngspice has an "ic"
command. the implementation for nodeset and ic for nodes should be
pretty much the same.

there is one (known) bug in +83. perhaps it should do the
sequence above.

another bug in in +87. the bm is not queried during tr_begin, so
it has to do another pass.

I have a proof of concept [1]. it kind of works conceptionally. I ran
out of time. Please feel free to add the rest or port it to C++.
