Re: CLI parsing—with `--help` text—`--foo bar`, how to give additional parameters to `bar`?


Yes it?s my module, and I?ve been using argparse
https://github.com/SamuelMarks/ml-params

No library I?ve found provides a solution to CLI argument parsing for my
use-case.

So I?ll write one. But what should it look like, syntactically and
semantically?
