I don't think we should start down the path of changing APIs just to accommodate weakness in the generation of the text signature.

We don't want to encourage unreadable oddities like sorted(reverse=False, iterable=source).  Best readability comes from the required positional argument for the iterable.  Please don't create a new and unnecessary keyword argument.   The current API is intentional.
