Ok. I added features to my initial xargs version:

- support exit codes as standart xargs utility and warning/exit for child exit codes
- true support max_chars and max_arg (-s and -n and -x) options (with as config 
feature FANCY_XARGS)
- support space-delim arg with single and double quoted

Bugs and unimplemented:

- unsuport read confirmation from /dev/tty
- unsupport other options except "-prtx -n max_arg -s max_chars"
- unsupport "\\\n" sequence.
