I don't think there is a right answer, you can decide
for yourself, buty in general I try using the >>> prompt
with a deliberate error to see what Python does, thus:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<input>", line 1, in ?
TypeError: range expected at least 1 arguments, got 0
So it looks like TypeError but personally I'm not so sure
that works for argv... I think a simple usage message and
exit with non zero is fine.
