Evgeny: I completely agree. It's unfortunate that argparse doesn't work that way.

However, I think it's too late to change this behavior without adding a new parser. I don't think existing argparse can be changed to not operate the way it does, due to backward compatibility concerns. The discussion in this issue describes those compatibility concerns.
