There will be some internal changes to do (as well as in learn), so
David may have other stuff to worry about :| The infrastructure for
GenericOpt is very simple: a simple setup.py is enough as it is a pure
Python package. It's more a question of checking every location where
it is needed:
- GenericOpt itself,
- learn in the code,
- learn in the setup step, which means uploading the package to pypi.
