What would it take to get a patch merged into gnulib for this issue?

The last time I looked at it, it didn't appear that it would work on platforms other than OS X and glibc, and it wasn't clear that it would work even on glibc when some other modules were used. Plus, the effect on the program_name variable (whatever it is) would need to be documented in the .texi files, e.g., what is the relationship between program_name and program_invocation_name on OS X. I'm attaching a list of places that should be looked at, in 'grep' format.

I do think the patch should go in, it's just that it needs to be done without hurting other platforms and so that it's documented.
