I was looking for some option in optparse module which will allow me to add custom help text after the generated help. Realized that OptionParser class has a keyword argument 'epilog' for the same purpose. 
But this is not been explained in the documentation, other keyword args are covered.

This specific issue can be closed.
But yes, I agree with issue 8158, there is a lot in OptParse Module documentation that could be improved and be made more helpful. If I have any thing more, I shall add it as part of issue 8158.
