Are there lots of programs that > want it that can't easily be patched to simply use argv themselves? This is not something that is absolutely necessary. __progname quite often is used on *BSD and less on Linux (eg. Owl's msulogin, popa3d)... but __progname is always easy to fix. Here we have the OpenBSD repo and content /bin directories: http://www.openbsd.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb/src/bin/ And here's a list of programs (from /bin/) that require __progname (70% of all): mv systrace md5 cp chmod cat rmail kill sleep rmdir mkdir extern ps df rcp ln date chio domainname stty rm pwd hostname For __progname we probably need to modify (asm) files in the musl/crt/.
