Paul and David, is the current PR complete in your opinion?  Are there known cases where the PR would break existing, working code?

Also there needs to be doc entry that is clear on both new and old strategy for distinguishing options from arguments when a dash or dashdash is present.  The PR's Misc/NEWS entry, "Fix behavior of argparse when '--' as argument to option", is insufficient.
