Hopefully it isn't ;)  It is a straight compile of the Jan 20 1.3.1 code.
I'll try to get an updated binary over there since it's a bit outdated.

I think that would be:
-w "level1=(x or y or z) or level2=(q or r or s) and target1=m"

I don't know if this works.  But, that's how I think it would look if it
does work.  Perhaps Mark, or someone else knowledgable with that code, could
answer that more specifically.

I don't think there is any set limit to the number of meta names that you
can use.  You should be able to specify as many meta names as your RAM will
allow.  There is a formula somewhere in the documentation that will aid in
the calculation.
