A new action "extend" has been added to argparse in https://github.com/python/cpython/commit/aa32a7e1116f7aaaef9fec453db910e90ab7b101

The documentation should specify that this is new in Python 3.8 addition. I wondered why it didn't work in Python 3.7.

I've added it to my todo list for the next round of updates.  Though I also plan to do some parsing of the more minor feature adds to make the document more readable.
