Thanks for the hints! 

Unfortunately, Dunnett compares the mean(x) for a factor level with the
means(x) of all single K-1 other levels resulting in K-1 comparisions for
each level (printed in a lower triangular matrix for the results). Instead,
I just want to compare this one mean(x) with one other mean(x) of all the
K-1 other levels (printed in a vector of length K for the results). 

Concerning  sos: sounds like a good idea!
