optparse multiple arguments

Hi,

I'm having some minor problems with optparse. I'm just worried that
someone shouldn't say that multiple argument feature isn't implemented
in optpartse.

How to tackle multiple arguments to an option ?
As far as I dug, I've found that >1 arguments are being ignored.

parser.add_option("", "--my-option", dest="my_option", action="store",
type="string")

Now if someone uses it as:
./foo --my-option a b c

I want somehow to store all the three arguments but my_option stores
only "a" while ignoring b and c.

Any help?

Ritesh
