In the choice between optlib and argvparse, argvparse wins by a
landslide. But I came up with a better one: optparse! This addresses
the argument by several Davids that argv is obscure to newbies. I
think it doesn't sound like optimization like optlib does.
optparse also seems to be what Ruby uses (it even has an OptionParser
class :-), and I found an optparse.tcl on the net too.
I also note that the recommended rhythm looks better as
from optparse import OptionParser
from argvparse import OptionParser
