"""Extend OptionParser with commands.


>>> parser = OptionParser()
>>> parser.usage = '%prog COMMAND [options] <arg> ...'
>>> parser.add_command('build', '')
>>> parser.add_command('clean', run_clean, add_opt_clean)
>>> run, options, args = parser.parse_command(sys.argv[1:])
>>> return run(options, args[1:])

With that defines two functions run and add_options

__docformat__ = "restructuredtext en"

# XXX merge with optik_ext ? merge with clcommands ?
