In argparse documentation parametres of add_subparsers are not listed. And yet there are some really useful parametres like parser_class. It would be useful, it they were described there well and one wouldn't have to look into the code to find them :-) I'll be happy to provide documentation patch tomorrow.

Here is a patch for this. I am not much of technical writer, so please be patient with me. I tried to provide all the information about parameters, that can be inferred from the code and experimenting. I have left out one parameter - action - because I don't see any use of it for a potential user and potential description seemed very complicated. I'll be happy to work further on the patch, if someone is willing to tutor me a little.

Looks good. A few minor comments (click "review" by the patch).

Looks good. There was one typo in "parametres" that I've fixed. Should be ready to apply.
