Function Parameters

When you use optional named arguments in a function, how do you deal with with
the incorrect assignment when only some args are supplied?

If I do something like:

    def my_func(self, **kwargs):

then handle the test cases with:

    if not kwargs.get('some_key'):
        raise SyntaxError
or:

    if kwargs.get('some_key') and kwargs.get('another_key'):
        ...

I loose the introspection that some IDE's provide from the doc strings.

Any ideas on how to deal with this?

Thanks!
