These have a bit in common, but its not a script template and its in french.

For this, adding text is just an example of a generated scene, it
could just as well be an array of cubes or a teapot too.

Using argv directly is ok for a few args, but when you want to add
many arguments in arbitrary order, its better to use pythons optparse
module, since it also deals with converting int/string/bool/filename
args for you and makes --help text from your args.

I noticed in your example there is no "--" arg, Its a good idea to add
this so blender will ignore all args after it and python can use
Otherwise you cant be sure a future version of blender might use the arguments.
