If it helps at all, I first learned about argparse a few weeks ago. I first went to the doc page and then immediately went to the tutorial, as suggested. I didn't find it difficult or off-putting at all. In fact, I loved that there was a tutorial that it explained it perfectly for my level as a newbie. I've referenced the doc page a few times since, but I haven't read it from beginning to end like I did to learn the str functions, for example. I think the doc page should be more advanced for people who need to know it's full power (as it is now) and the tutorial can serve newbies (as it does now).
