I fully agree with your (1) and (3), as they match what I also proposed

Regarding (2), I'm not sure that a getprogname()-like interface could
work with the existing progname.  I'd put that as second step for now,
and if it turns out to not work then progname could be marked as

If we delay (2), wouldn't that break programs that use both progname and a Gnulib module that uses getprogname? There would be two independent setters and getters of program names, and information wouldn't be communicated between the two.
