(I'm not quite sure where along the way just using a weak optreset was
discarded, but, oh well, this does make the code less ugly.)

So I take it this is supposed to always do a hard reset -- because if it
isn't, it might have been better to just always set optind = 1 as Eric
suggested. But googling suggests OpenBSD and NetBSD both have optreset
as well, and newlib accepts optind = 0 (and apparently did not accept
optind = 1 in the past?), so I think this is good for that purpose.
So thanks a lot (and sorry about me being so stupid about
everything...), I've applied the patch to my block branch:
