please try to keep a line down to 78 chars
exiting in a constructor is not nice, especially when you are planning on having
others use your code. Just throw an exception.
check() makes some of the same checks over and over, perhaps you should look at
the code's flow here and see if it can be done differently
globals are also icky
why is usage a) a list (it could have been a tuple) and b) defined at all. You
could just read __doc__ and make it the file's doc string
