I've been trying to use Greg's optparse package (new in 2.3) on some
other ZC projects, and for the most part I like it.  It has a different
rhythm than getopt, but has some nice properties over what I had been
doing, especially I suspect for i18n'd help.

I have a few minor quibbles, nits, and bug reports on it, but I'm sold
enough to be converting all my getopt-based option parsing over to it
for Mailman3.

Does zdoptions provide anything that isn't already in supported in
