Instead of allowing delete=None (which is not in the RST documentation), perhaps it is possible to change the doc string. I can’t remember the details, but I think Argument Clinic allows a virtual Python-level default, something like “object(py_default=b"") = NULL”.

Also, I think I like the change. What do you think about making the first argument optional (default to None), allowing calls like x.translate(delete=b'aeiou')?
