so how would you approach this? If slock was only a main()-function,
one could've thought to just pass argv[0] to each call of die.
But it is not.

Would your approach be to just set argv0 as argv[0] and carry on
without modifying argc, argv?
I was surprised this idiomatic one-liner has received such opposition.
