I'd also like to see this as the default. After all, presumably we'd like Python scripts to work like all other command line programs, and I too am unaware of any other option parsing library that works the way argparse does.

But changing released behavior in the stdlib is problematic, as everyone knows.

I'll look into producing a patch to add this as optional behavior, then we can separately think about changing the default.
