Hey, so I added the "required" flag we talked about, changes are minimal and I added a test-case for the required flag in the OptionParser unit test. Anyway, You can see the changes clearly in the changed files section I guess...

Should options which are marked as required cause the help screen entries for those options to look any different from the others? If so, what would you propose?

Well I suppose they should, since the exception is thrown @ parse time. Didn't think of that initially, sorry for that I guess... I think something along the lines of "" before the "default" spec should do just fine.
