Well I do know that, but what's the reason why I see so many "import 
string" in
the trunk ? Why I see so many classes that don't subclass object ?

I know it's a lot of work, so I was just asking if it's in the roadmap or not.

Wouldn't it be better to subclass OptParse ? I have the feeling usage.Options
does nearly the same things.
