Example of use

parser = caipyrinha.Caipyrinha(prog="Your Program")
parser.add_argument("--version", action='version', version="%(prog)s 0.1")

@parser.callback(exit=0, group="group1")
def first(flags, returns):
    '''Execute this option and exit'''
    print "bye bye"

def second(flags, returns):
    '''set his own return value with his parameter'''
    return flags.second

@parser.callback("--third", group="group1")
def no_used_name(flags, returns):
    '''you cant use this argument with first'''
    print returns.second

import sys
