I agree with Jim. I deliberately put here only the types that are used for command parsing, since I presume these are the things that the Command/Interpreter modules will depend on (it's not fully clear to me where to draw the line between these two, so it may end up needing to be moved from one to the other in the future, but I think that future will be pretty far away).

I also thought about the case when something else, which is logically lower than Interpreter/Command needs the string conversion functions -- in this case we could put the conversion function in a different module, but still keep the function in OptionArgParser as a wrapper on top of that. This way you would still have all the argument parsing functions in one place, while the things in the other modules (which by definition will not be parsing option arguments, or else they would be in these modules), can call the lower level function directly.

Ultimately, solving the layering of string conversion functions is not my goal here. I would be fully satisfied with breaking even. My goal is to move this stuff out of the Args class, so it can be moved down to Utility, as it is one of the main causes that everything depends on Interpreter (and then everything else).
