Returning void is fine, I think. It seems that all your code paths
either return 0 or die.

Can we please start to encourage libified code, rather than discourage it?

I did that so that I could call it from the opt_parse_... version below
it that is used by the OPT_ macros.

And Johannes is right, it bothers me that there doesn't seem to be a hard
line where one should or should not call die() vs returning an error code.
