dictConfig and fileConfig are nice for static needs, but when I want to quickly enable a complex (but not complicated) logging flow I find it just as tedious as the current situation with the direct API.

Adding a keyword only argument to the base handler and the other handler classes is a nearly trivial change in terms of lines and complexity of the code.

I don't see that as a problem. If 3rd party handlers are intelligent then they will include **kargs in their __init__ and pass that forward to the initialization of their parent. If they haven't done so then nothing changes for them and they just support exactly the same features they supported previously.
