> I would like to propose adding my Optik module to the standard library.

No immediate objection, although there are some other fancy options
packages around, and IMO you have to explain why Optik is better.

Can we change the name?  Optik is nice for a standalone 3rd party
module/package but a bit too fancyful for a standard library module.
It could be a new function in getopt:

    from getopt import OptionParser
    parser = OptionParser()
