I'm making this change to the package git, but I'm not going to push a new version out just for this; it's been my experience that most systems have python-argparse on them for other packages.

It'll get fixed the next time I do a bugfix release (I think upstream is going to be putting out a 0.6.1 pretty soon anyway).
