[Python-Dev] Bug/feature/patch policy for optparse.py

Hi all -- I've just thrown together Optik 1.4.1, and in turn checked in
rev 1.3 of Lib/optparse.py.  From the optparse docstring:

If you have problems with this module, please do not files bugs,
patches, or feature requests with Python; instead, use Optik's
SourceForge project page:

For support, use the optik-users@lists.sourceforge.net mailing list

and from a comment right after the docstring:

# Python developers: please do not make changes to this file, since
# it is automatically generated from the Optik source code.

Does this policy seem reasonable to everyone?  And, more importantly,
can you all please try to respect it when you find bugs in or want to
add features to optparse.py?  Thanks!
