I know that's the way to do it now.  However, I think the original
poster has a good point that it might be both intuitive and useful for
the publisher to pack any arguments that are not consumed by named
parameters into the keyword argument dictionary, if the function
accepts one.  I don't think this would be terribly hard to implement.


Every Python user scoffed at it once, saying significant whitespace is
the past.
