This - http://docopt.org/ - should be included with Python 3.4 distribution.
In addition to the other questions already asked, you haven't answered the fundamental one: Why should docopt be included in the stdlib? It's right there in PyPI where any one can get it. Why is it better in the stdlib than in PyPI?
The stdlib has mostly switched from using optparse to argparse. The next question is what relation docopt has to either?? What is its backend? Anyway, it strikes be as a wrapper module best kept as third party, similar to re and urllib wrappers.
Especially since it's one of the more "magical" argument parsers, which is fine as a library but not something we like to put in the standard library. cheers, Georg
