I think adding support for Subject (or similar support for multiple updates) might simplify the PowerShell scripting experience; for example:

[hashtable] $SiteProfileRawSettings = @{CacheDirectoryChanges = 0; FtpPingInterval = 60; CacheDirectories = 0}

What do you think (?) Note: I think good to keep existing AddRawSettings(string, string), for backwards compatibility; this would likely represent a new function.

Currently, SessionOptions.AddRawSettings(...) represents a wrapper function accepting two string objects:
public void AddRawSettings(string setting, string value)
    RawSettings.Add(setting, value);

Where object RawSettings represents an internal Dictionary object:
internal Dictionary<string, string> RawSettings { get; private set; }

For multiple updates, this seems to imply setting values iteratively; for example, for hashtable SiteProfileRawSettings:

$SiteProfileRawSettings = @{CacheDirectoryChanges = 0; FtpPingInterval = 60; CacheDirectories = 0}

Foreach ($Key in $($SiteProfileRawSettings.Keys)) {
  $SessionOptions.AddRawSettings($Key, $SiteProfileRawSettings[$Key])
