[Python-Dev] Reminder: optparse.py is auto-generated

I just noticed SF bug #850964, which Fred kindly fixed (back in
April)... except he did it by modifying optparse.py, which is a no-no.
As it says in the comment at the top:

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

Luckily, I've already fixed this bug in the Optik CVS, very similarly to
Fred's fix.  So the fact that optparse.py will be clobbered sooner or
later doesn't really matter in this case.  But it might have!

Sure, I'm paranoid... but am I paranoid ENOUGH?
