Bug#680342: xargs applet does not implement basic POSIX-specified features

Package: busybox
Version: 1:1.20.0-4
Severity: important

xargs does not implement options and features mandated by POSIX:
Notable, it does not process quotes and backslash on input, does
not implement -p (prompt) and -x (terminate on size constrains)

Also it'd be nice to support commonly used GNU extension, -0 option.
