I concur with Stefan.  AC is very impactful on modules, greatly affecting their readability and maintainability.  The existing PyArg_ParseXXX() calls and their "kwlist" static variable are very easy to work with, easy to modify, and easy to teach (I cover them effortlessly in the Python classes I teach).  In contrast, AC is much harder to learn, harder to get right, doesn't fit some existing APIs, harder to change, and it greatly expands the number of lines of code.
