Some versions of the series that added this had
an explicit check for count.  Essentially, the
expanded condition is this:

  if (count == 0)
     clear
  else if (count == 1 && auto_port(p))
     clear
  else
     set

The suggestion was that we could use a boolean (0|1)
to check reduce the above to
  if (count <= auto_port(p))
     clear
  else
     set

Personally, I prefer the extended version since it
is much clearer and is easy to understand.
