Argument Clinic adds the "_value" suffix to the end of variable names in C if the parameter name is C keyword. But it left unmodified parameter names that can conflict with parameter names of C function: args and kwargs (and module and self if they are used not as the first parameter). Following declaration generates a code that can't bi compiled:


    args: object
    kwargs: object

Either Argument Clinic should add the "_value" suffix to the end of these names, or use other names for parameters of generated parser function.
