Actually it doesn't really matter that I am not as imaginative. Maybe
you want to reuse the argp parser from within to parse a different
option group, or... Anyway, you are right, a global static would be bad.
I am just hoping we can get the executable state into the find_elf
callback without adding another internal field to the DWfl_Module struct
(if only because it is a little cheating, no other user can use it, it
would be just for our internal argp parser). But maybe there is no more
elegant way.
