The only useful changes to nice here are the move of usage, which is
more stylistically consistent with the rest of the source, and the
proper POSIX return value.

I was under the impression that this project includes ARGBEGIN/ARGEND
macros specifically to avoid getopt, so I see no reason to change to
it; it's more verbose anyway.

The nice system call automatically clamps the specified value to a
reasonable number, and even within linux, acceptable values have
changed enough that including a clamp results in nice being less
stable, not more.

The change to estrtol could be useful, but it could be better to
simply replace the atoi call with it, rather than introduce an extra
variable just to delay the exit until the end of the input loop.
