[docs] [issue37726] Tutorial should not recommend getopt

New submission from Guido van Rossum <guido at python.org>:

I read on python-ideas that the tutorial recommends getopt as the simple argument parsing choice, and argparse as advanced. This is silly. We should only promote argparse (unless you want to use raw sys.argv[1:]).
