I opened a pr to remove a line in the docs about $ needing to follow | in PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywords. In practice, you can just use a $ to create required keyword arguments which intuitively makes sense. I was told this should raise a SystemError; however, you can create required keyword only arguments in Python so I am not sure why we would want to fail when this is done with PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywords.
