This is more of a documentation issue than anything else. The fact that the argument is named "maxsplit" and accepts a default value doesn't mean it's usable as a keyword argument. It would be difficult to document a parameter without giving it a name anyway...

As a rule of thumb, methods accepting 2 parameters or less often don't accept any keyword arguments, since there's no point in doing so.

I suggest closing this issue.
