1001 and 1002 have been committed. 1003 should probably be reviewed
and refactored along with the resolver refactor/overhaul after 1.0.

I'm waiting for minor patch updates for putspent and dn_comp.
getopt_long still needs review. I think the rest have been committed.
There's also a new fgetspent patch that I hope to get included.

Still under discussion how best to do it.

Some members of the community expressed a sentiment that adding new
things like this should wait until after the release if they're not
critical, even if they're small (like most of the above are).

I have not done this yet, but I think it could be done before release
and I'd rather change it now than as a new change in 1.0...
