I've attached a new patch. With this patch, type.__prepare__ has an optional keyword-only argument 'namespace', and returns it if it's specified. Also, __init_class__ is passed an argument: a mapping proxy of the mapping originally returned by __prepare__.

I don't think so, because some of the arguments (name, bases) would be mostly useless, others would have a different meaning (namespace). Although, passing the keyword arguments from the class header might make some sense ... I'm not sure.

If everybody agrees with these changes, I'll create a patch for the PEP too.
