Ah, yeah, what I meant to *think* was: you can't have *spam *after* **eggs:

>>> def foo(x, **kwarg, *arg)
  File "<stdin>", line 1
    def foo(x, **kwarg, *arg)
SyntaxError: invalid syntax

So the logic of the latter part of the function seems okay (after the little
patch I posted before.) Jeremy should give his expert opinion before it goes
in, though, since it's his code :)
