[Bug-gnulib] feature request: argp()

I think it would be nice to have a argp() implementation in gnulib.

argp() is part of libc, but not supported elsewhere, and it does
generate much better --help, --version, --usage etc than other

A starting point for a standalone implementation (taken from lsh, but
with some bug fixes) is available in:

I'm using it successfully on 20+ platforms, but it does use alloca
which caused it to fail when I tried tcc instead of gcc.  It might be
a bug in tcc, but it would be nice to have argp() work without alloca
