def f((x)=0): pass

gives the following incorrect error message:

  SyntaxError: non-default argument follows default argument

"def f((x)): pass" is treated exactly the same as "def f(x): pass", so
it would seem sensible for the same to be true if a default value is
used.  But if this syntax is disallowed for some reason, the error
message should be fixed.

This appears to be related to bug #1557232.
