The name is basically fine, if just a little vague. But then again I
really doubt someone learning programming knows what getopt traditionally
But I don't have a better name, so I can't really complain. Best I can do
is ArgParser or something to try to tie the name into sys.argv.
And I completely support making sure that it doesn't have a cute name.
