In the trunk (r67617) documentation for *optparse* callback example 6
doesn't handle negative number arguments, and fixing it is "left as an
exercise for the reader."  Well, I'm a reader, and I've attached my stab
at it.  Caveat: It relies in trying to coerce the argument into a
float... maybe there's a cleaner way to do it?

(This is my first patch, so I apologize if I've fouled it up in some
way, particularly in the headers of the patch format.)

The 2.5 documentation is not in .rst, so I remove these versions.

I've reformatted and rewritten your patch a bit and applied it as
r67788. Thanks!

This patch should also be applied into the py3k branch, probably.  Good
catch on updating rargs, btw.

Yes, it will be merged to py3k automatically; we normally merge smaller
changes in batches.
