Hello Taavi!  It seems to me there is little value in changing all docs to use “**kwargs” instead of “**kwds”, given that this cannot cause actual problems.  The interesting thing is that the function takes keyword args.

For string.Formatter.vformat, I see no harm in changing it, but also no value.  Core developers tend to resist to aesthetic/cleanup/perfectionism-only changes for the sake of minimizing diff churn, avoiding divergences between versions and not taking unneeded risks (less so for doc changes, but a real concern for code cleanups).  Ezio, what do you think?
