I would think that the best course of action is to revert the dict.pop() check-in for Python3.8, then reapply in 3.9 once a plan is worked out to expand the capabilities of the argument clinic and the expressiveness of signatures.  The latter seem more like enhancements that need time to mature rather than putting them in to 3.8b2.

There's no real downside to reverting the dict.pop() checkin.  It's only effects were to generate an incorrect signature and to make help() misleading.

The patch is too extensive for backporting to 3.8 and 3.7.
