This looks like a good thing to have. Change and new documentation look
good. I would have liked to also keep source compatibility (and I would
have just introduced a new function), but looking around I couldn't find
any users of this function. I presume everything did just use the
dwfl_standard_argp way. So since it does preserve binary compatibility I
think the change is OK.
