[New-bugs-announce] [issue4568] Improved optparse "varargs" callback example

Gregg Lind report at bugs.python.org

New submission from Gregg Lind <gregg.lind at gmail.com>:

In the trunk (r67617) documentation for *optparse* callback example 6
doesn't handle negative number arguments, and fixing it is "left as an
exercise for the reader."  Well, I'm a reader, and I've attached my stab
at it.  Caveat: It relies in trying to coerce the argument into a
float... maybe there's a cleaner way to do it?

(This is my first patch, so I apologize if I've fouled it up in some
way, particularly in the headers of the patch format.)
