Before the argparse migration usageExit was invoked and could be extended via subclasses, but it no longer is. We could delete it (and document it being no longer accessible) or put some glue in to reinstate it. I think deleting it is fine, as long as we make the argparse parser objects part of the API (so that folk have a reliable place to poke at to change help).

Well, to this issue, I'm going to put a PR to remove it and give it a chance for it to being reinstated if you folks want to.

I suggest we mark the method as deprecated and remove it in 3.13.

Making the argparse objects public can be done in a separate enhancement request if there is demand for it.
