Note that the interface defines the following parameters so that at the very least, external extensions can guarantee that they can properly add command line arguments when necessary. The implementation itself should, and will provide and support many more options than those listed here. That said, the implementation must support the following: Args: args (list): List of option arguments. Generally something like ``['-h', '--help']``. Keyword Args: dest (str): The destination name (variable). Default: `args[0]` help (str): The help text for ``--help`` output (for that argument). action (str): Must support: ``['store', 'store_true', 'store_false', 'store_const']`` choices (list): A list of valid values that can be passed to an option whose action is ``store``. const (str): The value stored if ``action == 'store_const'``. default (str): The default value.
