# static const struct argp libdwfl_argp =
#   { .options = options, .parser = parse_opt };
# const struct argp *
# dwfl_standard_argp (void)
# {
#   return &libdwfl_argp;
# }

What returns dwfl_standard_argp is irrelevant, it is const anyway.

Modifiable is struct argp_state:

# static error_t
# parse_opt (int key, char *arg, struct argp_state *state)

But one can call parse_opt for arbitrary number of different struct argp_state
structures in arbitrary order in arbitrary states of their execution (even if
no threads are in use).

Is there still a disagreement?
