Thanks for the review. Sorry to send that here instead of the review page, but I get an error when replying: "Invalid XSRF token.".

Yes, sorry, I should have perhaps explained it in further details... Here are some examples:

* Example test case 1:

parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument('--foo', type=type_foo_func, default='foo')
parser.parse_args('--foo bar'.split())

=> Before the patch, type function is called in parse_known_args() for the default given in add_argument(), and then in _parse_known_args() for '--foo bar' given in parse_args above, whereas type function should have been called only for the second one.

* Example test case 2:

parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument('--foo', type=type_foo_func)
parser.parse_args('--foo bar'.split())

=> This was already working well before my patch.

* Example test case 3:

parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument('--foo', type=type_foo_func, default='foo')

=> type_foo_func is called after parsing arguments (none in this case) in my patch.

Therefore, my patch just moves the function type call after parsing the arguments (given to parse_args()) instead of before, only and only if it was not previously given in parse_args().

I have just updated the patch on the bug report. Thanks.
