import argparse
parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
parser.add_argument('things', nargs=argparse.REMAINDER, default=['nothing'])
parser.parse_args([])
>>> Namespace(things=[])

Since there were no unparsed arguments remaining, the `default` setting for `things` should have been honored. However it silently ignores this setting.

If there's a reason why this wouldn't be desirable, it should raise an exception that the options aren't compatible.
