Comment(by robe):

 I tried to use the choice='opt' feature of docbook hoping it would produce
 that, but that didn't seem to work.  So your proposal might require us
 writing our own chunk.xsl which when I brought up to Kevin a while back he
 figuratively shook his head in a (NO WAY JOSE sort of way as it involved a
 lot of changing of .xsl files I guess). Does Python use docbook? Maybe I
 can see how they do it and copy that.

 I think we can swing putting in default values.  I might have to change my
 test scripts.  I think my auto generate help comment scripts should still
 work fine without change since they will probably just list the default as
 part of the description, which would be nice anyway.
