In principle POPT_fprintf could be applied for popt options only. The
context of "popt options only" is extremely difficult to identify  
however,
because popt behvaior is driven by application data.

No matter what, I'm not going to be accepting patches for
popt such as POPT_fprintf (or the Solaris signed character
"fix") without explicit regression tests in the future.

And I'm likely to revert to Robert Scheck's patch for the next  
version of popt
as that seems to be closest to being explicitly identified as "working".
