D.get(key[, default]) -> D[key] if key in D, else default.

There is no big problem with that. D is defined at the start. The only thing I would have suggested is avoid using square brackets to mean two things in the one expression. Since it is no longer the signature, calling with both parameters should be okay:

'''
get($self, key, default=None, /)
--
D.get(key, default) -> D[key] if key in D, else default.
'''

However the other method no longer defines D:

'''
setdefault($self, key, default=None, /)
--
D.get(key,default), also set D[key]=default if key not in D.
'''

You could restore the initial text as “D.setdefault(key,default) ->”, or maybe rewrite it like

“Like get(), but also insert the default value if it is missing.”
