Nicholas, there is Issue 8706 about converting functions and methods to accept keywords in general.

There is also the slash “/” indicator proposed by PEP 457, which is used for some functions in pydoc; bytes.replace() for instance. In Issue 23738 I was trying to get some consensus on using this slash notation in the main documentation, in which case bytes.translate() could look like

bytes.translate(table, delete=b"", /)

And there is Issue 21314 about where to document the slash notation that is already used in pydoc.
