I agree with Andrew, but I think the optparse documentation should make it clear that this is what happens with a default value for an 'append' action.  It is *implied* by the fact that append says it appends to a list, and default says the value is set before any options are parsed, but it should be made explicit in the docs for the 'append' action.  Doc patch welcomed.
