When the defaults are filled I expect ba.arguments to be "complete",
that is have a value for every signature parameter. Otherwise I have to
special-case *args and **kwargs.

A use case was given in issue22998.
My use case is JIT-compiling functions and function calls in Numba. We
reimplement the function calls ourselves, so need a complete mapping of
arguments to values.
