Glad it's useful, thanks for the pep!

If you go witht the `(*a, **k)` pass-through API, would you have a
special keyword-only arg called 'header' or similar? That seems like a
decent compromise to support the feature with the builtin while
allowing other implementations to offer more features. In any case, +1
to a pass-through API, as long as the built-in supports some kind of
mechanism to help the user get their bearings with "you're here" type
