I assume this is the problem:

>>> dis.dis('f(*a(), b=b())')
  1           0 LOAD_NAME                0 (f)
              3 LOAD_NAME                1 (a)
              6 CALL_FUNCTION            0 (0 positional, 0 keyword pair)
              9 LOAD_CONST               0 ('b')
             12 LOAD_NAME                2 (b)
             15 CALL_FUNCTION            0 (0 positional, 0 keyword pair)
             18 CALL_FUNCTION_VAR      256 (0 positional, 1 keyword pair)
             21 RETURN_VALUE

— looks fine.

>>> dis.dis('f(b=b(), *a())')
  1           0 LOAD_NAME                0 (f)
              3 LOAD_NAME                1 (a)
              6 CALL_FUNCTION            0 (0 positional, 0 keyword pair)
              9 LOAD_CONST               0 ('b')
             12 LOAD_NAME                2 (b)
             15 CALL_FUNCTION            0 (0 positional, 0 keyword pair)
             18 CALL_FUNCTION_VAR      256 (0 positional, 1 keyword pair)
             21 RETURN_VALUE

Joshua, we could make function calls take:

x lists
y dictionaries
one optional list
z dictionaries

but we as well do all the merging in advance:

one optional list
one optional dictionary
one optional list
one optional dictionary

which is representable in three bits, but four is easier to decode I think.
