> Wasn't this change a mistake? 

Now that it is deployed, it should probably be left alone (it is has to take back an API change), but this should be a cautionary note for arg-clinic enthusiasts to not change existing APIs.  When Argument Clinic is too limited to express what Python does for an exiting API, that particular function needs to be skipped.
