I just mean something like this:
$ diff -u rankmirrors rankmirrors.2

 def createOptParser():
-  parser = OptionParser()
+  parser = OptionParser(usage="usage: %prog [options] <server list file>")
   parser.add_option("-n", dest="num", default=0,
            help="number of servers to print, 0 for all")
   parser.add_option("-v", "--verbose", action="store_true", dest="verbose",

As for other suggestions, the only thing I can think of is an option
to output in "file format" - that is, everything prefixed with '#'
except the server lines, so one could just > it to a file.
