New submission from Christof Hanke:

On https://docs.python.org/2/library/argparse.html (and on those of the 3.6-Version) it says at the bottom:



    This method prints a usage message including the message to the standard error and terminates the program with a status code of 2.

In fact, the returned staus code is 1.
