You could try, but I doubt it'd get any traction.  After all, if you do
func(**kw) there's no possible way to capture the order of the keyword
arguments, since the underlying dictionary didn't have an order.  Also you
have to remember that for:

def add(x, y): return x+y

these function calls are all equivalent:

add(1, 2)
add(1, y=2)
add(y=2, x=1)
