[docs] [issue10190] Can argparse._AttributeHolder._get_kwargs become a public API?

New submission from Dariusz Suchojad <dsuch at gefira.pl>:


I was wondering if it were possible for the argparse._AttributeHolder._get_kwargs to become a part of the public API.

Using this method is a very convenient way to get a hold of the arguments provided by the user and it would be shame to keep it private, I for one use it in several places even though I clearly know the name starts with an underscore, it's just that reimplementing it in my code seems counter-productive, would be very nice if '_get_kwargs' became 'get_kwargs' in some future release.

Thanks for considering it!
