It seems either that Okuji doesn't care or doesn't know yet.  I
personally prefer argp because it is easy to use, flexible and less
work to maintain.  And like you said, less code... less code normally
means less bugs.

So it depends on Okuji what to do.  If he doesn't care I would be
happy with such a patch.
