I think your original suggestion makes sense: '?'

My intuition is that nargs helps argparse discern whether it's dealing with single or multiple values. That may not be what was intended.

There probably shouldn't be multiple ways of indicating an argument is optional. It seems that required= and nargs='?'|'*' combinations could lead to conflicting requirements.
