New submission from Nikita Sobolev <mail at sobolevn.me>:

After https://github.com/python/cpython/pull/28279 and https://bugs.python.org/issue45166 `ForwardRef` and `_type_check` now have `is_class` kw-only argument.

It is now inconsistent with `is_argument` and `module` arguments.
It would be quite nice to make them all kw-only.

Quoting @ambv:

> _type_check we can just change in Python 3.11 without any further ado. ForwardRef() will need a deprecation period when the users is calling is_argument= and module= as non-keyword arguments
