Just to clarify: the ambiguity is about

	-jk --extra-opts

and the thing not supported by Python's OptionParser is options that
take an optional argument?

I would've thought that "--extra-opts -jk" is quite obviously meant to
be equivalent to "-jk --extra-opts"; but if your parser doesn't support
this, that's of course a major problem.  Hmm.
