This is a request to be able to name C arguments differently from Python arguments.

Two reasons:

* like for function renaming, some Python argument names are reserved in C ("default" for example, used in sys.getsizeof())

* sometimes the function uses 'O' in PyArg_ParseTuple and then converts the object itself with a nontrivial process.  Usually the converted variable has the name of the Python argument, while the temporary object is named "obj_foo" or "foo_obj".  When converting to Argument Clinic, we have to name the object "foo" and find a new name for the converted "foo", which leads to code churn and less beautiful code.
