- Can you change that to a normal for (i=1; i<argc; i++) type of loop?

Sure, I was just going for the minimal number of changes..

- Custom loop logic always worries passersby... and this particular diff
- really looks wrong even though I'm pretty sure it isn't.

The change was required to make everything work.  but I'll make
it less obtuse.

- Other than that, seems like a fine idea to me.
