Actually we share the same foggy memory. Maybe it was BEOS? I can't put
my finger on it either. When I looked, I could not find it .. so it had
to have been something now off the 'radar'.

mh... I don't think it was BEOS...

Perhaps it will lead to building the better getopt :) The modern getopt
should not use gettext, rather it should let us register a callback
function that prints and deciphers its noise according to weight. (5
being debug, 1 being error). That callback could then use gettext .. and
the issue would be solved.

This keeps extra dependencies out, but still makes internationalization
simple .. yes? :)

yes, that'd be a nice implementation! :-)
