I think the patch is a reasonable extension, but there's more to do:
[jbj@wellfleet popt]$ make check
make: Entering directory `/X/src/popt'
Running tests in /X/src/popt
Running test test1 - 1.
Running test test1 - 2.
Running test test1 - 3.
Running test test1 - 4.
Running test test1 - 5.
Running test test1 - 6.
Running test test1 - 7.
Running test test1 - 8.
Running test test1 - 9.
Test "test1 -2 foo" failed with: "arg1: 0 arg2: rest: foo" != "arg1:
0 arg2: foo"
Would you mind looking at the problem? Thanks ...
