This package is about PEP 472 -- Support for indexing with keyword arguments
As a result, I think we're now in a good position to try this idea out, using present day Python. This includes building some clients that can use the new feature, should it become available. It also includes exploring the design of the API.
The crucial idea is writing
>>> from kwkeys import o
>>> d[o(1, 2, a=3, b=4)]
as a stopgap, until
>>> d[1, 2, a=3, b=4]
If you're interested, please do try it out.
On 18 July I wrote that by the end of July I would implement and publish general purpose code for the NOW part of these goals
Earlier today, 3 days overdue, I fulfilled my commitment. I hope it helps some of you, and does no harm to others.
