Very useful module!
I see that --files0-from was added to `du` in Mar 2004,
so it's a nice solution to this 4 year old issue.
I notice that argv_iter does a malloc() + memcpy() per entry.
Since the sources are already NUL terminated strings
perhaps it could just return a pointer to a getdelim
realloc'd buffer which was referenced in the argv_iterator struct.
