In http.server.test, it still say "This runs an HTTP server on port 8000 (or the first command line argument).", but it won't read command line argument any more.

Patch looks okay to me, although another option could be to move the argument parsing back into the test() function, where it was originally.

BTW I don’t think the 3.3 branch is open to fixes like this any more.

I'm not quite sure we should put argument parsing back into the test() function or just fix docstring. It already expose port and bind through function arguments. It looks wierd to me to have function arguments & CLI arguments modifying the same variable in the same time. If we want to move argument parsing back, I think we should clean the function parameters. In this way, the docstring of test function still need some update, though. (we have much more CLI arguments now)

Yeah you are probably right. This way keeps things simple.
