Dear friends

Here is a example package:

(*Title : Package for testing options*)


fexample1::"usage" = "Help example";

Options[fexample1] = {a -> A, b -> B}


fexample1[x_, opts___Rule] := 
  (a + b) x /. {opts} /. Options[fexample1]



(*Now I request the package Help*) 


(*They are shown not only the fexample1 help but the symbols used in
Options are also shown. How can I prevend that these symbols (a, A, b,
B} be shown.

Other general question:

When Options should be place inside of the private context?
