I agree about the runtime, and I don't really care about the argument
limit personally, but in this case I think the benefit outweighs the
cost: the change doesn't look too hairy and the memory savings for
programs that don't need crazy-many-args is nothing to sneeze at. Not
always having to pay that cost for a weird and probably stupid use case
is great, IMHO.
