In the argparse module, the argument '--' is interpreted as a signal that everything after it is a positional argument. '--' is literally written into the argparse code, in _parse_known_args. This means that a user who wishes to use '--' in some other way is out of luck. 

I suggest the addition of an argument to __init__ (or a method call, or something) that allows '--' to be replaced with some string of the user's choice.
