   In my opinion, that's awkward.

Maybe it might prove to be that, but I find the current situation very
awkward and prone to bugs.

   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?

External wrapper was my thought.  This would only be fore `weirdo'
command line syntaxes, so you would always need to parse the arguments
manually in either case.
