New submission from Steven Bethard <steven.bethard at gmail.com>:

Argparse supports silencing help for certain options using SUPPRESS.

>>> parser = argparse.ArgumentParser()
>>> parser.add_argument('--foo', help=argparse.SUPPRESS)
>>> parser.print_help()
usage: [-h]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit

This should be documented in the description of help=
