------- Comment #1 from René Stadler  2007-04-03 14:40 UTC -------
The problem is unrelated to optparse though.  Consider this simple example

>>> import sys
>>> sys.argv.append ("--help")
>>> import pygst; pygst.require ("0.10"); import gst
  . [OPTION...] - GStreamer initialization

Help Options:
  -?, --help                      Show help options
  --help-all                      Show all help options
  --help-gst                      Show GStreamer Options

Application Options:

The problem is that the gst module does not act like library.  Instead, it
performs the I'm-a-simple/stupid-program procedure by calling gst_init_check.
