Zoularis is actually not very heavyweight EXCEPT for one thing: there are ugly hacks in place to deal with the __progname hack. It turns out that doing __progname portably is very hard indeed. If someone could come up with a better hack for dealing with __progname well, we could have our portability library work much more smoothly. Perry
