PyArg_ParseTupleAndKeywords and PyArg_VaParseTupleAndKeywords currently accept `kwlist` as `char **`; however, is not modified by either function. Therefore, a `const char **` might be better since this allows calling code to take advantage of `const` safety.

This is a duplicate of issue21011.

We cannot change this because it breaks C API.
