OK, `d1.update(**d2)` is not useful in practice.  Practical usages of dict.update() are:

* d.update(d2)
* d.update([(k1,k2),...])
* d.update(k1=v1, k2=v2, ...)
* d.update(**d2, **d3, **d4)  # little abuse, but possible.

In all of them, kwdict is not used at all or can't avoid unpacking the kwdict.
