I failed today to print help message for base64 utility without an error:

 $ python3 -m base64 -help
option -h not recognized
usage: /usr/local/Cellar/python/3.7.2_1/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.7/lib/python3.7/ [-d|-e|-u|-t] [file|-]
        -d, -u: decode
        -e: encode (default)
        -t: encode and decode string 'Aladdin:open sesame

So I felt like this is a ripple in time space continuum worth adjusting.

I already opened a PR to address this (probably not so worthy) issue (link attached).
