Hello,

I think that this isn't possible with optparse library.

However, it's possible with argparse (http://code.google.com/p/argparse/):
 http://argparse.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/doc/other-methods.html#sub-commands

It's not a standard library, but it's worth to take a look at it.

Best regards,
    Javier
