Hi Steven, I'm not exactly getting what you're meaning here: are you actually saying to replace every occurrence of 'option' with 'argument' in the whole argparse module doc, or just make it stronger in the mentioned line that what was called previously 'option' is now called 'args' ?

PS: wouldn't it be better to use this form "(options, args) = parser.parse_args()" instead of "options, args = parser.parse_args()" ? optparse doc uses the former, so it should be easy to recognize for those willing to migrate to argparse
