From a python-dev email from Neal Becker, copied here so it won't get lost.
----------------------------
steven.bethard@gmail.com made a very nice module for me to enhance argparse called argparse_bool.py, which contains ConfigureAction.  This will allow a boolean value to be set very like the gnu configure style:

--foo
--with-foo
--without-foo
--no-foo
--foo=yes
--foo=no

I've been happily using it, and I think it would be of sufficient general interest to include it with the standard library.
