:heh, then you disagree with matt about that, and with style(9).

    I'd tend to rather have people stick with char **argv instead of
    char *argv[], the issue being that the passing of array types 
    as arguments is a rare occurance these days generally due to the
    confusion it creates due to both the right hand notation of the
    array, and the fact that the C just converts it back to a pointer
    when used as an argument to a function.
