I mentioned in the related bug/issue that no one has to use odd characters and spaces in the Namespace.  While they are allowed by 'getattr' etc, the programmer has the option of supplying rational names in the 'dest' parameter.  

There's also the question of what kinds of strings can you supply via  'sys.argv'.  For example, I have to use quotes to enter

    $ python '--b=2), Namespace(c' test

Without them 'bash' gives me an error.

Strings like this may be nice for exercising a patch, they may not be realistic in full argparse context.
