How about these names for the module:1. optionparse
2. shlopt (for shell options, sounds kinda cute albeit less descriptive)
And the decorator Names:
1. shell_expose_kwargs and shell_expose_args
2. expose_keywords and expose_arguments
3. expose and expose_keywords?

> Also, please name the classes and functions so they're not needlessly

> very-commonly-used abbreviations with little ambiguity. That way the
> names will be both more descriptive and easier to pronounce, and thus
> easier to remember correctly.
