This following recipe from Optik examples should be added to documentation. It is extremely helpful when porting to optparse from getopt or other option parsing schemes.

It allows to port options to and from optparse incrementally.

We aren't encouraging people to use optparse any more.  The recipe isn't needed in argparse, as that has a "parse_known_args" method that achieves the same end.

I agree with David and suggest closing this as outdated.  Thanks for the suggestion nonetheless.
