While playing with some examples, I found that exclusive group formatting has another failure case.  If the usage line is long enough to wrap, optionals and positionals are formatted separately, with positionals appearing on a separate line(s).  That means that if a group includes a positional, it will not be marked.

So (shortening lines for convenience sake), instead of:

    usage: [-h] ... (-a | -b | x)

we get

    usage: [-h] ... [-a] [-b]

This is true even if arguments are added to the group in the normal way.
