Although I don't care very much, I urge the gst guys to not close it as
I don't think, it is necessary to parse *sys.argv* at all. Instead, it should
parse a *given* array of arguments, maybe even a more sophisticated data
structure such as a dictionary. I've made my points already, but I'll add
PEP-008 which clearly states:

    - Imports are always put at the top of the file, just after any module
      comments and docstrings, and before module globals and constants.

I wouldn't ship a Python module which clearly makes the programmer violate this

But still: In order to get this issue resolved, someone who's responsible
should set this bug either to NEW or to WONTFIX.
