A. Please don't top-post. It makes following the conversation more
difficult by presenting it out of chronological order.

B. -i is an option to the Python interpreter *itself*, not the Python
script, and so gets gobbled up before the script even starts, thus
`getopt` won't work. Observe:

chris at morpheus ~ $ cat foo.py
from sys import argv
print argv
chris at morpheus ~ $ python -i foo.py
['foo.py']
>>>

Cheers,
Chris
