it is fine, except the interface and the program name there was not
anything to discuss ;-)

Right, "available" looks better than "current", I'll change it.

I would avoid this interface, as it causes longer commands while using
two separate options can be shortened by getopt.  I don't think that
"--count" improves the readability (considering that nproc can't do
anything else) so much to sacrifice that possibility.  What do you
