argp?

I'd like to use argp[1] in a Cygwin program, but I see that it's not
implemented in Cygwin.  The catgets and cpio packages have apparently
imported it statically into their source, and advice on the net is to
import their implementations.

Is there a particular reason that argp isn't available in Cygwin, or has it
just never been important enough for someone to bring it in?  Would people
be receptive to having it available as a separate package, say libargp?
