OK, my wife, fluent in idiomatic French, tells me it means (and very
close to the Google):
Minister/ambassador "super"-extraordinary ("plenip." by itself = able
to sign treaties without supervision) available (as in "for hire").
Mobile (as in "will travel" - remember the old TV show Palladin "Have
Gun - Will Travel"?). Without fixed bath (as in "bathroom" - a pun on
"without fixed address").

So, I am reminded of a plumber who has no office - a very obscure
reference to the "terrorist" plumber in "Brazil"?
