if we'll ever go for this solution, I would call it "-semihosting-cmdline", 
since it should include the entire command line, starting with argv[0].

this was my opinion too, and my first patches implemented this solution.

this is also true, and, although a bit more complicated to use, I implemented 
this solution.

my fault for stalling it, I decided to wait until I have a chance to give it a 
try in a real use case (in my testing infrastructure, which is not yet ready... 
:-( )

but, as I said, although a bit more complicated, the current solution seems 
fully functional.
