Sorry, I don't think that is a good idea.  The use of None as a placeholder for optional arguments is legitimate and well enshrined in Python history.  The code is bisect is very old, stable, and battle-tested.  There isn't a real bug here, nothing is broken; instead, we have a near pedantic notion that the C-version must be forced to replicate a minor and irrelevant implementation detail of the Python version that goes beyond what the docs guarantee.  I recommend closing this as "not a bug".
