  Check the entire length of the current argument for the EOF string with -E,
  but don't expect a proper ASCII string to exist right here right now, don't
  use strcmp(3) which checks for a NUL.  As we're still building the argument
  up, the next character might be garbage.  It would probably be just as safe to
  temporarily write a NUL there, but if we've reached the end of argument memory
  that might not be the best idea, I think.  It's unclear.
  Doing it this way seems to meet the most with the original intent.
