Default Power Blow Damage Listing

I'm looking for suggestions for how to precalculate Power Blow damage for various weapons and unarmed attacks. Ideally I'd like to be able to add a listing to the melee weapons table.

I've looked at creating a custom modifier to add either to skills (eg Karate) or to gear, but I couldn't wrap my head around it.

While looking it seemed like adding a listing to the dropdown menu in the quick edit box for 'calculate damage based on power-blow st' would be nice but again, that is beyond my ken.

The best I've managed was to duplicate a weapon, make it free, add "PW" to it's name and then in advanced edit mode add *2 next to the entry in the damagebasedon tag. This seems like a terrible hack.

How do other people do it?

The problem is that damage done when NOT using Power Blow will be wrong any time you're not using it, if you make it part of the weapon; or wrong normally when you are using it.

It seems to me that two listings, one with and one without, is the most efficient way to handle it.
