argparse.REMAINDER matches an empty list of arguments, just like '?' and '*'.  So they are always 'filled', even by `parse_args([])`.

'?' and '*' have some special handling of defaults in this case, see in

    argparse.ArgumentParser._get_values

the two 

    value = action.default

REMAINDER has its own section in the function that does nothing with the default.

I think it should be left as is.
