My suggestion to use `metavar=('A','')` to streamline the usage creates problems with the help code

http://bugs.python.org/issue14074

The tuple metavar does not work right for positionals.  That's a old issue that should have been fixed long ago.

So streamlining the usage has to be done with a custom HelpFormatter subclass.
