Nice catch. We cannot use variadic macros, because we support pre-C99
compilers that do not have them. But the sentinel attribute is a good
idea. Here's a patch.

Subject: [PATCH] argv-array: add sentinel attribute to argv_array_pushl

This attribute can help gcc notice when callers forget to add a
NULL sentinel to the end of the function. We shouldn't need
to #ifdef for other compilers, as __attribute__ is already a
no-op on non-gcc-compatible compilers.

This is our first use of an __attribute__ that is not "noreturn" or
"format". I assume this one should be supported on other gcc-compatible
compilers like clang.
