we should never pretend an old module doesn't exist.  leave optparse as
optparse.  argparse can come in under its own name.

we can mark getopt and optparse as deprecated at some point and remove
them in 10 years :)

+1 on inclusion btw.  It looks like it'll obsolete a bunch of crappy
argument parsing code that exists in some projects i work on but I
haven't had time to clean them up and switch.
