You can post a patch to, but it will probably just get 
forwarded to the optik site because the optparse module is supposed to 
be automatically generated from the current optik release. My impression 
is that optik is mostly unmaintained, which makes getting patches 
applied to optik difficult...


P.S. FWIW, I think it would be great to get your patch in -- this 
feature is requested all the time.
