We are considering adding a new directive to expose functionality
that has long been in the SuperCore.  It is an alternate task
entry style that follows "main".  Your task's argument list would
look like:

rtems_task MYTASK( int argc, char ** argv )

The directive would look something like this (naming suggestions
requested :).

rtems_status_code rtems_task_start_main_style(
  rtems_id         id,
  rtems_task_entry entry_point,  /* probably need another type? */
  int               argc
  char            **argv
