Here: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.4/howto/custom-management-commands/ starting here:
"The same closepoll could be easily modified to delete a given poll instead of closing it by accepting additional command line options. These custom options ..."
The documentation doesn't say anywhere that the option will be stored in the dict "options" pass as argument of the method. As obvious as it sounds I've add to google it to find this information and apparently I'm far from being the only one: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4208006/how-does-one-use-django-custom-management-command-option (it's sad that no one since 2010 has repported this bug :/).
Documentation should always state the obvious.
