An observation:

In example 16.4.1, a script named 'prog.py' is given, and the user is told
that they may execute it from the command line like so:  $  prog.py

My issue with this, is that it doesn't mention that the script starts with
a shebang or is made executable with chmod +x, and even then the command
would be $ ./prog.py.

Assuming the Python code above is saved into a file called prog.py, it can
be run at the command line and provides useful help messages:

$ prog.py -h
