I think this is good enough,

The only remaining issue is rte_option_init().
Sorry I missed your previous message and did not respond in time, I
would have opted for leaving a return value to at least be able to stop
the init on error. It is possible to force the callback type to return
an error value along with a string / hint describing the error. It
should not be hard to add it later, so not blocking IMO.
