[New-bugs-announce] [issue8841] GetoptError strings should be localized

New submission from Richard Lowe <richlowe at richlowe.net>:

The GetoptError exception raised by getopt.getopt() to indicate errors in provided arguments seems intended to be displayed to the user[1], but is not localized and doesn't contain enough information, short of interpreting the error string, for consumers to raise their own, localized, error.
