Okay, thanks for the info.

I can see why now, at least for this particular one requiring inlining
of stdout.  However builtins.c has served well for all the other opts
I've done, I see no reason to abandon it.  (I'm not sure if you meant
for your comment to apply to all the stdio opts or just the one
requiring stdout.)

Understanding the tree based inlining is likely to take me some time,
so I'll finish up the other builtins.c based ones and get back to this
later.  (Sigh.)

In the mean time, would you please take a look at:

so I can finish up this thread?
