While this question reamains open, I'll add another one about this patch:

Can we really be sure adding arguments to a callback won't break the ABI for
existing applications? We can certainly be sure that we break the API and that
may in fact be annoying enough for application authors...

I thus propose that we do use a new option name for this extended callback,
and support the former one with the existing name but we document it as
deprecated and add it for removal on the next soname bump.
