Since "getopt" is already universally understood as the way to spell "ah,
that's the command-line option parser module", I'd rather see Optik get
exported from getopt, as getopt.XYZ for some value of XYZ.  Then the name
XYZ doesn't have to convey "command-line option parser" anymore, but just
"another one of those".  Heck, make getopt itself a package.
