There is a typo in argparse module documentation:
"The ``nargs`` keyword argument associates a different number of command-line arguments with a single action.." (two dots at end).

Patch based on official http://svn.python.org/projects/python/branches/py3k/ repository, but typo is also noted in Python 2.7 documentation.

Fixed, thanks for the report.

BTW we are using HG now (http://hg.python.org/cpython) and patches should be submitted against the oldest applicable branch (either 2.7 or 3.2 is fine in this case).
More info at http://docs.python.org/devguide/.
