optparse is deprecated, not removed. It's not going to see any new
development, but last I heard it's going to remain available
indefinitely. Also, as python 2.7 is the last release in the Python 2
line, it's pretty clear that it's never going to be removed from that
series. That gives ReviewBoard (and anyone consuming RBTools) until at
least 2015 to deal with the migration (since the Python upstream has
committed to bug-fix support of Python 2.7 for five years after its
release). Beyond that, I know of certain enterprise OSes that will
likely extend the usable life of Python themselves.
With that in mind, though: Christian, will ReviewBoard 1.8 be supporting
