I think that having max 255 args and 255 kwargs is a good and reasonable limit which we can live on, and helps the virtual machine implementation (and implementors :P).
Python won't lose its "power" and "generality" if one VM (albeit the "mainstream" / "official" one) have some limits.
We already have some other ones, such as max 65536 constants, names, globals and locals. Another one is the maximum 20 blocks for code object. Who thinks that such limits must be removed?
The BDFL thinks that 255 is too low.
The BDFL can propose a patch :)
