This is still possible if the type of the second argument is
char const* argv[] as shown by the following code:

char const* args[] = { "zero", "one" };
std::swap(args[0], args[1]);
std::cout << args[0] << std::endl;
std::cout << args[1] << std::endl;

It wouldn't hurt if parse_command_line and friends had a const there, if
they don't change the strings by design.
