[New-bugs-announce] [issue35784] document that hashlib.new takes kwargs

New submission from Jörn Heissler <launchpad at joern.heissler.de>:

This code works:
hashlib.new('blake2b', b'foo', digest_size=7)

documents the function as: new(name, data=b'', **kwargs)

But the **kwargs argument is missing in https://docs.python.org/3/library/hashlib.html#hashlib.new and there aren't any examples either.
