This patch accomplishes this task by adding a  _PseudoGroup class to _SubParsersAction.  It's like the _ChoicesPseudoAction except that it maintains its own _choices_actions list.

It takes advantage of the fact that formatter._format_actions is recursive when it comes to actions in _choices_actions.  In fact it is possible to define groups within groups (not that I would recommend that).

There is one simple test case in test_argparse, similar to the example in this issue.
