TL;DR

Changing positional argument name doesn't break backward compatibility.
After start accepting keyword argument, it's name is part of API and should be stable.

For example, document says `str.startswith(prefix[, start[, end]])`.
But this patch seems using `sub` instead of `prefix`.
https://docs.python.org/3.5/library/stdtypes.html#str.startswith

Keyword name should be chosen carefully, like choosing method name.
So I'm -1 to adding keyword argument support to many method in one issue.
