[Python-modules-team] Bug#704678: Further useful information.

Interestingly, this was not a problem with the version of  argparse than I has packaged (1.2.1), but rather with the way I had packaged it.

I put an __init__.py file along with argparse.py into a folder and simply added

from argparse import *

into __init.py__.

This is where the problem lies because although argparse defines a __version__ attribute, it also defines an __all__ attribute which did not include __version__. So I added __version__ to the __all__ attribute list and now the ipython version check is OK.

I'm wondering if this is something I should tell the argparse developers or am I just using it in a funny way?
