The only way to implement cascaded parsers in argp is by using
argp_child pointers. The only way to implement parsers of extended
command line syntax (be it "weirdo" or not), is by getting the index of
first non-option argument via the fifth argument to argp_parse and
analyzing it afterwards. In both cases, argp gives no alternatives.

In my opinion, that's awkward.

Do you envision this "whatever" to be an external wrapper program
which constructs the new command line and invokes the proper
utility, or some kind of a library call that does the command line
translation prior to invoking argp_parse?
