  Description     : Python module for easily creating `git`-style subcommand handling

  The subcommand_driver automatically figures out what name the script was
  called as, then looks for subcommands and runs them if found, passing in any
  command line options.
  If you have a `foo` script in your $PATH as shown below
     #!/usr/bin/env python3
     from gitlike_commands import subcommand_driver
     if __name__ == '__main__':
  Running `foo bar baz` will look for a `foo-bar-baz` script, and if present
  in your $PATH, run it. If there is no `foo-bar-baz`, it will look for
  `foo-bar`, and if it finds that, run `foo-bar baz`.
  The subcommands can be written in any language, the only requirements are
  that they are marked executable and follow the `foo-something` naming

I plan to maintain this package as part of the Python team.
