Hope I'm not too late to get Optik 1.5 into Python 2.4. I release Optik 1.5a1 last weekend and so far haven't heard a peep of complaint. Sneaking it into Python 2.4a2 would help ferret out any compatibility bugs. (The changes are pretty small; the only reason I called it Optik 1.5 instead of 1.4.2 is because there are a bunch of small changes, and it's over a year since 1.4.1. ;-)
The only catch is that I've updated the Optik reStructuredText docs, and haven't yet devised a clever way to convert them to LaTeX-for-the- Python-manual format (talking about optparse rather than Optik). (Code donations welcome. ;-)
So: I'd like to checkin Optik 1.5a1 as optparse.py right now, and worry about the docs later. Hopefully before Python 2.4a2 goes out the door, but no promises. Objections? If I don't hear any soon, I'll do the deed tomorrow morning.

OK, optparse.py and test_optparse.py are now upgraded to Optik 1.5a1. Docs ... ummm ... later.
