[Python-ideas] Keyword-only arguments?

My approach to this particular case has always been, if I need to port
keyword-only args to older Python versions, I'll just remove the '*' and
make it a documented convention that those arguments must be passed by
keyword only, without enforcement. The code obfuscation is just not worth
it -- it's just rarely super-important to strictly enforce this convention.
