The change is clear and self-explained. See the patch.


1. The hack "To prevent optparse from raising an exception..." works for single letter flags (-I, -L, etc.) only. I plan to add --sysroot related codes for Android builds and I don't want more hacks. Apparently argparse does not need this hack as it can parse all known flags before throwing an error
2. optparse is deprecated

Add the developer that introduced this hack. Also Serhiy, who sseems interested in removing optparse from the code base. (issue18973, issue18971)
