I was suggesting that that wouldn't be allowed.  So subscript either has a single argument, a tuple of arguments, or a dictionary of arguments.  Allowing both has some advantages but is less cleanly integratible.

But what if you wanted to take both positional AND keyword?You can't
ensure that the key is both a dict and a tuple.

Cleaner to continue passing the tuple exactly as normal.
