[snip...] Another thing I just noticed is that argparse using -v for version where optparse does not (it only adds --version); most of my scripts that use -v to mean --verbose, causing problems. Since this is a poll question on the argparse site I assume this is an outstanding question for argparse, but just generally I think that doing things the same way as optparse should be preferred when at all reasonable.
I also use -v for verbose in a few scripts (including options to unittest when run with python -m). I've seen -V as a common abbreviation for --version (I've just used this with Mono for example).
All the best,
