I don't know. I agree that using a single library for the same goal is more 
consistent. However, I am so used to getopt, and I have no problem with it. 
Thus I am not eager to migrate to argp in particular, although I do not 
object to using argp.

(In my whole life, I have used argp only once for Hurd.)
